Description: The New York Times calls Sister Wendy Beckett "a pop star". The Washington Post calls her "a phenomenon". Art in America, in its glowing tribute to the world's best-loved art expert, cheers the "genuine passion Sister Wendy brings to her commentary" and her "rhapsodic descriptions". Here this British nun, whose public television series and books have introduced millions to the pleasures of art, combines her interest in the Muses of classical mythology with her appreciation for fine porcelain -- in a lovely little paean to the patron goddesses of the arts.

The nine Muses and their protector, Apollo, are shown as fine porcelain pieces, and the text notes the qualities that make them the unique guardians of inspiration. Radiating Sister Wendy's infectious enthusiasm on every page and revealing her personal reflections on the complexities of human nature, this unique mythology book -- the only volume in print devoted exclusively to these classical Greek sources of inspiration -- is an inexpensive delight.
