  1. I'm sorry, but I think that the first picture is NOT a portrait of JH Belloc. It is the portrait of a man called Jean-Paul Douliot (1788-1834), from Avignon, France. The portrait could be a work by JH Belloc, but it is not signed. See: http://compagnonnage.info/blog/blogs/blog1.php/2013/07/15/restauration-portrait-douliot
    This was confirmed to me by one of JHB's descendants, Mr Jebb. There is a photograph of JH Belloc in his old age, by Bayard and Bentall, in Wikipedia : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Hilaire_Belloc#/media/File:Jean_Hilaire_Belloc_-_Peintre_fran%C3%A7ais.gif
