The Two Page Boys?

Something about Pierre Mignard's painting of Louise de Keroualle featuring the negro girl has never sat well with me.

To put it blankly, it seems that the painter didn't care much about expressing her femininity,with her hair so short, uncoiffed and not wearing earrings (for us Africans, girls must wear earrings). Well the mystery seems to have been solved. It is really about the pearls and coral she profers to Louise de Keroualle.
