Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
In each episode of this series, Sister Wendy Beckett, England's best known art appreciator, introduces viewers to a major U.S. art collection. Not an art historian, Sister Wendy just knows what she likes. Viewers who are intimidated by "serious" art history programs may her find her warm and unpretentious views endearing. Those in search of incisive commentary might look elsewhere. In this particular episode, viewers travel the galleries of the Art Institute of Chicago. Here, Sister Wendy examines Seurat's pointillist masterpiece, Sunday Afternoon at La Grande Jatte>.
