This chapter examines the importance of visual arts in Shelley' work and explores his continued creative presence in a wide range of artistic media. It first considers Shelley's descriptions of Italian sculpture and painting, and focuses on the often overlooked Notes on Sculptures in Rome and Florence and his letters to Thomas Love Peacock. The chapter then explores some of the artwork that has been inspired by his poetry, and next looks at portrayals of Shelley on screen.

Keywords: Percy Bysshe Shelley; visual arts; Italian sculpture; Italian painting; Notes on Sculptures; Thomas Love Peacock
