Sister Wendy Beckett, the world-famous "art nun," offers her unique and personal guide to one of the most extraordinary collections of Old Master, Impressionist, Modern and Asian art in America. Sister Wendy explores the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California which bears the hallmark of one private collector, its founder, Norton Simon. In her trademark manner, she offers her own inimitable reflections on some of the collection's most famous works and some of its lesser-known gems. She points out her personal favorites and reflects on Norton Simon's choices as well.
