Louise de Kerouaille, Jacques d'Agar - Thumbnail
I don't think this painting leaves any doubt about its intent. A black boy holding up a crown beneath what looks like the outstretched leg of the King's mistress, and 'pointing through the hole' so to speak. Add a second black boy to the mix, spying on from behind the pillar, and it becomes all too much for the delicate sensibilities of white folks to bear.
