A murderous desire for love

The collage of Romaine Brooks depends on the original images are taken from here, there and everywhere.

The words "The boy with the thorn in his side / A murderous desire for love" is taken from the lyrics of "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" from the single compilation album "The World Won't Listen " of The Smiths.
For the single cover of "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" is featuring the photo of jumping Truman Capote by Cecil Beaton in 1949.
So, I think Romaine Brooks is the painter for "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side", her "friends" and herself.

Gabriele D'Annunzio, an Italian writer and politician met Romaine Brooks 1909. They spent the summer of 1910 in a villa on the coast of France.

In 1911, Romaine Brooks became romantically involved with Ida Rubinstein. After they broke up in 1914, Romaine Brooks painted Ida Rubinstein more often than any other subject for her paintings.

In 1911, Gabriele D'Annunzio wrote the a five-act musical mystery play "Le Martyre de Saint Sebastian" (music composed by Claude Debussy) for Ida Rubinstein. Romaine Brooks painted "L'Archer masque." In this painting, Romaine Brooks painted Ida Rubinstein as Saint Sebastian and Gabriele D'Annunzio as Masked Dwarf.

In 1914, Romaine Brooks painted Jean Cocteau for the painting "Jean Cocteau". Firstly this painting was featured two women, the sisters of Natalie Barney for the right side. But the part of featring women was separated as Jean Cocteau won't need women. Maybe Jean Cocteau was "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" but he was with the thorn in another side of Romaine Brooks.

In 1915, Romaine Brooks met Natalie Barney, an American-born writer who hosted a literary salon on La Rive Gauche, Paris's Left Bank.

From 1920 to 1924, most of Romaine Brooks's subjects were of women who were in Natalie Barney's social circle or who visited her salon. Several of these paintings depict women who had adopted some aspects of male dress.
Truman Capote, who toured Romaine Brooks's studio in the late 1940s, called it "the all-time ultimate gallery of all the famous dykes from 1880 to 1935 or thereabouts"
