      Tania's mother in Black Eyes (1939), so presumably it's Black Eyes Sr.:

        Hamilton Brent, an ancestor of the character played by Frank Cellier in the film, on whom the portrait is probably based.

          No doubt the erstwhile keeper of "Mrs. Podmore's Cat" under the gaze of the PUBLIC EYE.

              Getting The Woman's Angle on the portrait on the wall in 1952, I reckon it's supposed to be Marjorie Fielding (resplendent here as a crotchety matriarch) in her younger days as a concert pianist:

                Having died off during the course of The Lady with a Lamp (1951), Michael Wilding just about gets a brief re-appearance as a portrait towards the end of the film:

                  Is his "late" missus Elizabeth Sellars. Tom displays his standard expression as he could be The Last Man to Hang in 1956.
                  Is that The Fallen Madonna With The Big Boobies by Van Klump?

                        Most people follow the IMDb's habit of using the first public screening to indicate the year, trade shows don't count

                              And I suppose the portrait is of the younger aeronautic days of Tommy Mayfield as played by John Stride, but I don't find the likeness that incredible.
                              The portrait looks more like Terry Thomas to me

                                It looks like Terry Thomas to me too and it's really well made
