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 to America's best-known art museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Among other items, Wendy presents a tiny floral logo from a forgotten sultan.
