I’ve been thinking about art this week because I’ve been reading a wonderful book on the final letters of the late “art nun” Sister Wendy Beckett.

She burst on to our screens decades ago as the straight-talking Catholic nun who knew as much about Monet’s water lilies as she did about the inner workings of a religion 2,000 years in the making.
