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 halls of the Los Angeles County Museum, a place often criticized for its lack of thematic focus. Viewers will find that doesn't matter to Sister Wendy, and she brings the viewer's focus to the tiniest details.
