This painting was painted in 1898 by John Collier the English
Pre-Raphaelite artist. It depicts Lady Godiva, an eleventh century Anglo-Saxon
gentlewoman. Legend says that she rode naked through the streets of
Coventry (now a small city in central England) as a protest against the heavy
taxes imposed on the local populace by her husband, the local Lord.
