Edwin Landseer was one of the most successful painters of the early Victorian period and was Queen Victoria's favourite living artist. He was particularly famous for his paintings of animals. Landseer began 'Lady Godiva's Prayer' in the 1840s. He may have seen Claxton's painting of Godiva because this work has many similarities. It is a pious scene which shows Godiva praying, probably before starting her ride.
