Thanks Sister Wendy!

I was fortunate enough, a few weeks ago to come across a book called 1000 Masterpieces by Sister Wendy Beckett.  It is a huge hardback book, full of information and of course, the 1000 paintings.  In fact, it is your own personal art gallery, and I have already had hours of fun thumbing through it.  Plus, I got it second hand for the princely sum of £1.50!

It reminded me that I had seen Sister Wendy (a nun) on TV many years ago talking about art in her own engaging style,  some of you may remember.  I feel I owe her for this, as it has really helped me learn more about historic art.

While I am on the subject, there are few exhibitions that I am currently interested in:

Who’s with me?

I have been lucky enough to pick up a copy of the guide to Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow recently also, I would like to get one for the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh next.

  1. Your luck won’t hold out for long if you don’t pay for the guide soon! :evil:

  2. I love(d) sister Wendy. She might have been a nun, but she wasn’t above explaining what was going on in some of the more racy pictures. I am a snoopy person and always like to know the backstory. :)
