1674, Jan 121698-17341734, Nov 21
a French portrait painter, known for his portraits of the French and Jacobite nobility. As a portrait artist, Belle's style followed that of his master François de Troy, Hyacinthe Rigaud, and Nicolas de Largillière. Belle became the principal painter to the Jacobite court, where he and his wife settled and worked. After war broke out again between Great Britain and France in 1702, their portraits of James Edward Stuart ('The Old Pretender') and his sister the Princess Royal continued to be smuggled across the Channel, and Belle did other work for members of the court and for the English Augustinian convent in Paris.
