About the Author

Sister Wendy Beckett is a member of the Notre Dame order, a teaching order of nuns. She studied for her degree in English at St. Anne's College, Oxford where she graduated with highest honors. After teaching in South Africa, she returned to England in 1970 to live a fully contemplative life under the protection of a Carmelite monastery in Norfolk, where she lives in seclusion to this day. A lifelong art lover and recognized art historian, Sister Wendy began serious study of the subject in 1980. She writes for many art magazines and her wildly popular BBC television series, Sister Wendy's Odyssey, Sister Wendy's Grand Tour, and Sister Wendy's Story of Painting are seen on PBS.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Christine C. Robinson on January 15, 2001
Format: Hardcover
Each of the 18 entries in this small book is a gem; a reproduction of a work of art (or a detail from a larger work), and her own comments interpreting them. She gives us many pictures of peace; landscapes, faces, abstracts, a stained glass window...and discusses in a few paragraphs what makes for peacefulness and what may look peaceful but is not. There's a lot of wisdom packed into just a few pages. I can imagine using this book for meditation and odd moments. It's the sort of thing one might read through in a sitting and then return to, bit by bit, over days.
