Gifts of Works of Art

It is unimaginable to think of the Philadelphia Museum of Art without the gifts and bequests of masterworks donated by public-spirited individuals and organizations over more than 130 years. Over 90 percent of the works of art in the Museum's world-renowned collections were acquired through gifts--an extraordinary testament to the generosity of distinguished collectors over the past thirteen decades.

There are a number of ways in which donors can give works of art:
  • as an outright gift
  • as an irrevocable promised gift
  • as the gift of a percentage of value over a time period designated by the giver (also known as a fractional interest gift)
  • as a bequest in the giver's will

To inquire about giving a work of art to the Museum, please send digital images of the object and any details (such as artist/maker, date, and medium) to .

Gifts of works of art are reviewed by the appropriate curator and subject to approval by the Museum curatorial committees. Donors of gifts of works of art are recognized in the credit line of the work of art when on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, when on loan to other institutions, and when used in publications or on the Museum’s website. Donors of outright or irrevocably promised gifts of works of art are welcomed as members of the Anne d’Harnoncourt Society.



The Anne d’Harnoncourt Society

During her remarkable tenure as The George D. Widener Director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Anne d’Harnoncourt fostered the growth and distinction of the Museum’s extraordinary and diverse permanent collection. In tribute to her legacy, donors of outright and promised gifts of art and/or those who make financial gifts of $5,000 or more designated for art acquisition, are recognized with membership in the Anne d’Harnoncourt Society. The society’s membership is comprised of generous individuals who exemplify Miss d’Harnoncourt’s lasting vision to ensure our collections remain comprehensive in scope, exemplary in quality, and accessible to all.
