Whether it was discussing Caravaggio or nudes in paintings, Sister Wendy always did so with authority and a good laugh.  She was a jovial presence in my younger days, when PBS really offered wonderful educational programming.

May the good Sister rest in the Bosom of Abraham now, and I, along with many others, thank her for proving that one could be devout and still have not only no fear, but a passionate love for art and culture.

PBS offers a short biography of her life here.
