He studied painting at the Munich Academy where he enrolled on 14 April 1875 (Register: 3145) at the age of 25. Colliers’ Lady Godiva was bequeathed by social reformer, Thomas Hancock Nunn. When he died in 1937, the painting was offered to the Corporation of Hampstead. He specified in his will that should his bequest be refused by Hampstead (presumably on grounds of propriety) the painting was then to be offered to Coventry.
