John Collier's Lady Godiva (1897)

Finding a calendar with the works of my favorite artistic movement, I came to know the exquisitely beautiful painting above by John Collier, who, while painting in their style, was not a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. In the Pre-Raphaelites Wall Calendar, the painting graces the month of February. Should Lady Godiva not appear as Miss April in American editions of this calendar, given that she led one of the Anglo-Saxon world's most memorable tax-protests?
