    This is a rare miniature portrait of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822). He was one of the major English Romantic poets and is critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. Shelley was famous for his association with John Keats and Lord Byron. The novelist Mary Shelley was his second wife. The miniature is in a contemporary frame which is inscribed "Percy B Shelley 1792-1822". The writing style appears to be consistent with a date of around 1825.

    John Keats lived only twenty five years and four months (1795-1821), yet his poetic achievement is extraordinary. His writing career lasted a little more than five years and three of his great odes were written in one month. Most of his major poems were written between his twenty third and twenty fourth years, and all his poems were written by his twenty fifth year. In this brief period, he produced poems that rank him as one of the great English poets.
