Romeo and Juliet Project: Artwork Choices
A Guide to Romeo and Juliet through Art
Just as Shakespeare was inspired by Ovid and Arthur Brooke to write this play, tons of artists have been inspired by Shakespeare’s in order to create their own works of art. Use this list to help you choose which scene/artwork to select for your final project. This list is not complete! If you want to use a work of art specifically about Romeo and Juliet but not included on the list, contact me.
