Eugene Delacroix was one of the best known painters from the French Romantic school during the nineteenth century. He liked to paint scenes from famous works of literature, but he also has a number of beautiful paintings from the Orientalist movement, depicting genre, literary, and mythological scenes of North Africa and the Middle East from the romanticized viewpoint of Europeans. It helps that he also looks like he walked out of one of those Byronic works that he loved to visualize.
Conversation with Ana Kraš, New York City 2013 by Études Studio
#this is so great because Billy is just a kid coming from this little town #where his own family has a hard time accepting that he likes ballet #where people are ignorant and with a lot of prejudices #he might not understand why Michael likes boys and why he likes to wear girl clothes in secret #but that doesn’t make him stop being his friend #and he even ends up stealing a tutu for him #and he doesn’t do that to make fun of his friend #but because he knows it would make him happy and it does #Michael was the first to encouraged him to pursue his passion for ballet #Billy is the first to encourage Michael to be himself #so in the end it’s sad because Billy has to leave the town to pursue his dream #but the smile and the kiss is him encouraging Michael ‘you’ll make it too’

How long will I love you? As long as stars are above you, and longer if I can.
“I think it’s sad that you’ve given up, I think you have a lot to share if you cared to. I shouldn’t be the only one who knows you.”
