God's Child Influences

Influential work that inspired Paul Gauguin's, 'God's Child'.

Olympia, Edouard Manet, 1863, From the collection of: Musée d’Orsay, Paris
You can see that Olympia has a Black cat on her bed while Gauguin uses a white cat. Is there a symbolic meaning to this?
Venus of Urbino, Tiziano Vecellio, 1538, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
Again we have a similar composition with the background painting being divided in two.
