Sister Wendy’s Book of Muses
Wendy Beckett (au); Justin Pomfrey (ph)
Since the early 90s, when her first TV series aired, Sister Wendy has been one of the most ardent champions of art appreciation. She is known & loved for bringing knowledge & understanding of art to a wide audience. This book is a celebration of the 9 goddesses from mythology that control the magic of inspiration. From the 3 original Muses -- Urania, Calliope, & Erato -- to their guardian, Apollo, Sister Wendy describes these little-known mythological figures. Clio, the Muse of history, grasps the laurel wreath of victors, as well as a golden trumpet to proclaim the truth. Terpsichore swirls in movement, the Muse of dance. Sister Wendy illustrates her discussion with porcelain figurines of the goddesses -- some by such celebrated modelers as J.J. Kandler.
