Lord Tennyson wrote a famous poem about Godiva in 1842 which encouraged many artists to paint her.

By the end of the Victorian age the Victoria and Albert Museum was famous for its collections of medieval architectural sculpture, and surely it is from there that Collier has gained his inspiration. Certainly Coventry was not at all like this but was a wooden, single-storey village.
