About This Book
Discovering Europe's Great Art
After the great success of her PBS series, Sister Wendy's Odyssey, here Sister Wendy takes a grand tour of 10 of Europe's great cities and capitals of art. Her passion for art has led her--with the readers of this book firmly in tow--to Goya and Velázquez in Madrid; Donatello and Botticelli in Florence; Caravaggio and Raphael in Rome; Van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Vermeer in Amsterdam; and Kandinsky and Rubens in St. Petersburg. She also makes pilgrimages to artworks in Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Venice, and Antwerp. Sister Wendy offers lucid, compassionate, and articulate commentaries about each of the cities and their great masterpieces--primarily paintings, although some sculptures are also examined. The tour concludes with a brief biographical section outlining the lives of each of the artists discussed. In the end, Sister Wendy doesn't set out to tell us which paintings are good and which are bad, she simply wants to share with us the art that she loves. This is art appreciation at its finest. --Amazon.com
