Henry P. McIlhenny Collection: An Illustrated History
Joshua J. Rishel & Alice Lefton. As a student at Harvard in the 1930s, Henry McIlhenny set out to form a great art collection. Following the principles established by his teacher -- to collect only in selected areas & to acquire only the finest objects available -- he concentrated on 19th-century French paintings & drawings, & with the collaboration of his mother succeeded admirably in this goal. By the time of his death in 1986, the collection included such masterpieces as Degas’s “Interior,” Toulouse-Lautrec’s “At the Moulin Rouge,” & Renoir’s “Mlle Legrand.” McIlhenny also bought for his house in Phila. significant pieces of silver, & furniture in the Empire & Restoration styles. This collection is one of the most important donations of art ever made to a public institution. Color photos.
