Lady Godiva rode naked through the streets of Coventry, so the legend goes, to convince her husband to lower taxes. She ordered no-one in the city to watch - but presumably it's fine if it's a painting, because you can find a varied collection of painted depictions of the legend at the Herbert Art Gallery, on Jordan Well in Coventry city centre. Peeping Tom, who did look at the event, was struck blind - check your eyesight after you view the paintings at the gallery, until 4pm today.
