    In Honor Of Sister Wendy Beckett RSVP DEC 2018This book hit me before the television portion didliterally I was at a gallery showing of photos from the brother of the film industry s biggest star in the 1990s, and as usual I was lost, not being the most adept at art or photography When I wandered into a conversation about paintings and admitted my confusion between Manet and Monet and Millet and Magritte I am M challenged , an enthusiastic estate agent ran to her car and came flying back with this heavy weapon, which she then tossed at me She was clearly excited about the book and the author, so I gave it a shot to see if a published nun could help me understand what everyone else was discussing.Well I loved it Sister Wendy Beckett s enthusiasm explodes off the page so that I, too, started believing her explanations of the 450 masterpieces The book is meant for Art Dumbquats like me, presented with large plates, historical asides, and the Sister s love of art After this, I was hooked.Perhaps for those with greater intellectual aptitude, this may not be their cuppa tea But for the simpletons who can t understand the fuss about a Jackson Pollock thingy raising my hand , this is the perfect coffee table book It even makes the coffee table look better Besides, now when I sit my exhausted self down in one of the innumerable museums of the world, I can actually focus on the pictures and not just my tired tootsies.Book Season Year Round start with crayons

    I love art I love nuns I love Sister Wendy What a fabulous, humble, knowledgable, woman If you have never seen one of her shows from a PBS series, you must youtube one immediately I have shown her videos to students, and at first they laugh at her, but then this transformation takes over, and they really listen and enjoy her.

    I know I m in the minority, but I can t stand silly Sister Wendy and her breathless gushing The TV program did her in as far as I m concerned Not for me.End of growl.

    Sister Wendy s intuition about the insights of art are mind bendingI love her series and I agree with her insights She made me see art different as a story indeed of painting I now know why the Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the world Sister Wendy taught me that It s woman s joke on man and the gender gap Man tries to paint woman to understand her, capture her, control her, whilst all the time, that s impossible She smiles because the very idea is ridiculous to herto attempt to understand her by painting herthat s the secret behind the smile To this day man still tries to understand woman by attempts at control and we still as women have reason to give them this very smile that she doesamazing Watch Sister Wendy and learn amazing insights and how to develop your own artistic insight.

    The Story of Painting Who doesn t adore Sister Wendy Beckett Passionate, insightful, articulate, she is a masterful writer and educator Although perhaps ostensibly written for the neophyte, serious students of art would be mistaken by not giving proper accolades to the The Story of Painting I did find one very minute error on a very peripheral subject The famous Mertin Behaim globe of 1492 is described as the first terrestrial globe when in fact it is not the first, but the oldest in existence There are several references to the existence of terrestrial globes in antiquity A very trivial error, but this is a history book

    Even the librarians who know my penchant for thick books by now gave me double takes when I checked this out It s one of the biggest books i ve ever seen It was fascinating, though I actually really enjoyed it, despite that I ve never actually read an art history book before or since this was a fairly random experience and learned a lot just flipping through and reading pages at random during the three weeks I had it out And to ice the cake I actually knew the Jeopardy question about Judith and Holofernes because of this book It was an epic moment of my life right there.

    Oh, what a wonderful book this is Wonderful And what was most wonderful about it is that it s written by the wonderful Sister Wendy Beckett, whose attitude for virtually every painter is, oh, now THIS painter, oh, he is WONDERFUL And since I m in that frame of mind as of late about painting, I greatly appreciated her extraordinary positive and irony free account of these wonderful artists I read all 700 plus pages of it, which is to say I read about fifty pages The rest are filled with wonderful reprints of wonderful paintings.

    The illustrations on this book weren t the best Lot s of the detail pictures look like they were accidentally over sized during the copy process I think I bought it because it was wrapped in plastic Had I examined it before hand, I wouldn t have purchased it.Good for reading once, but too big to tote around It s a coffee table book.

    Fantastic, in depth overviews of famous paintings by our favorite lisping nun I also really like the illustrations and lay out The publisher, Dorling Kindersley, can usually be relied upon to produce quality work, especially when it has a strong visual element Any of their art related books are worth picking up.
