Sister Wendy's - Story of Painting

Sister Wendy's - Story of Painting logoBy the inimitable Sister Wendy Becket. It is one of the most readable art history books I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few ). Other than that, it's a beautiful book, crammed full of color prints. Before this book was published, I would have chosen TAML, but I much prefer Sister Wendy's positive, enthusiastic comments. AML includes, as I'm sure I have mentioned before, too many references to the dark side of artist's lives for my tastes, but it does have some nice, convenient charts. On the other had, the lovely Sister has some wonderful point-by-point analyses of important paintings. Both have nudes.

Sorry!

Sorry! logoMeet Timothy Lumsden, a 41 year old librarian, diminutive in stature, with a keen interest in amateur dramatics. A smart enough chap, witty and bright; but women do often cause him to blush. This, however, is never an obstacle to his romantic intentions. What always is the obstacle is his mother - domineering, overbearing and omnipresent. Timothy still lives at home with his parents and it's his smothering, bossy mother who insists on treating him as if he were still a little boy. His father often joins Timothy in silent defiance of this Gestapo officer in a dress, and his sister Muriel--who left the nest, like a Colditz escape party, many moons ago--is often there to lend an ear and offer advice. Timothy would love to fly away, but the apron strings seem to be made of reinforced steel. W...
