The Painted Lady: Images of Godiva

This blog post comes to us from Eliza Redgold, author, academic and unashamed romantic. Her new novel Naked: A Novel of Lady Godiva was released by St Martin’s Press on July 14 2015.

We all know the legend of Lady Godiva, who famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry, covered only by her long, flowing hair, or have seen her picture, even if only adorning a box of Belgian chocolates. There are many more images of Godiva. She has captured the imagination of artists for centuries. She has been a muse of painters from Landseer to Dali. These are just some a few of portraits in the last five hundred years. Long may she continue to inspire.

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
