A French cleric inside a church apparently seducing a young woman in a confessional. Rather than merely a satirical comment on morality in the French church, this seems to be a representation of Father Girard, a Jesuit priest, and Charlotte Cadiere, who were involved in a scandalous liason around 1730.
