Sister Wendy on the Art of Mary
It features fifteen pieces of art relating to Mary, with an extended reflection on each piece. The commentary is meditative, more reflection on the spiritual nature of the paintings’ subject than art critique. Sister Wendy writes with the deft hand of one who is formed in spirituality, art, and critical thinking. Her imagery is lush, creating a landscape where the sacred and profane live in comfortable coexistence through the medium of painting. For spiritual seekers and lovers of art, this book will offer a unique journey into the experiential nature of a well-rounded faith.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I purchased the book simple because Sister Wendy Beckett wrote it. She is absolutely excellent as an art historian and spiritual guide. She, in my opinion, is a legend. I learn a great deal, in both knowledge and wisdom, from her art interpretations. I feel very fortunate to have purchased them at such a reasonable price. Thank you!!!
Beautiful book and illuminating writing!
I cannot give a review because I am giving it away as a gift.
Vintage Sister Wendy writing.
excellent product and convenient service
Beckett entered the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1946 and graduated from Oxford University in 1953, but in 1970, she obtained papal permission to leave her congregation and become a consecrated virgin. Her former congregation arranged for her to live under the protection of the Carmelite nuns at their monastery at Quidenham, Norfolk, in the east of England. There she leads a contemplative lifestyle, dedicating her life solely to solitude and prayer, but allotting two hours of work per day to earn her living.
