Jean-François de Troy - The Garter by Irina

Jean-Francois de Troy [French Neoclassical Painter, 1679-1752]

i love how in stories about ancient times and ancient heros there’s always someone who says “you will be remembered for centuries, the glory of your name will never fade” because it’s true, we’re hearing about them right this moment, they lived thousands of years before us, yet we still idolise them and love their stories. it overwhelms me and fills with awe
