This book is wonderful. It really explains different paintings in a simple manner that actually makes it interesting. I bought one other book and there are actually many others by this author that I would consider buying because this one was so great!!

Zoomed in plates of famous works of art are the main reason I just love this book. That and, of course, Sister Wendy! You can see work up close taking in the lines, brushstrokes and artist's detail. It's comprehensive as far as a nice representation of the artist's work. Not really though on bios or anything like that but really spectacular for the sheer volume of art work included. I guess, one could say, she lets the art speak for itself.

Great images along with information. Great resource not just for art, but history as well. Quality images help to give a fuller view of great pieces of art

Beautiful reporductions. Sister Wendy does not let the
paintings stand on their own. She gives you a short history
of the artist and also her own interpetation of what
thoughts and emotions the artwork brings out in her.
So you learn about Sister Wendy's view of the art
which becomes fun because you look at the painting and don't
even come close to that interpretation. But that is the
fun of art. Each person has different emotions and thoughts
all stemming from the same piece.
I bought two other Sister Wendy books.
They are all worth it.

This book was purchased as a text for a college course that hasn't even begun yet. In the meantime, I've thoroughly enjoyed looking/reading through it and so have my four children (with some parental discretion)! We have already learned SO MUCH about many pieces of well-known art and some of the most famous artists!! I am now especially looking forward to all that can be drawn from it throughout my Humanities course!

thank you sister Wendy for sharing the real meaning of looking at art. How it
makes us feel and she helps us understand what is the meaning behind many
paintings. Sister Wendy talks about religious and secular paintings with
the same reverential spirit.
Very Informative.
