Sister Wendy Beckett, celebrity BBC art historian, dies at 88

When she was a child, her family moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, where her father attended medical school before they returned to South Africa. At 16, she entered the Sisters of Notre Dame in England and began religious life as Sister Michael. Later, as an act of humility, she reclaimed her given name. She didn’t like “Wendy.” It made her think of “Peter Pan.”
