Jean Veber drew several caricatures of Allais in Le Journal, January 6, 1896; here are two of them.

Ernest La Jeunesse (who, parenthetically, had a long affair with Allais’s wife, and may have fathered her child) drew this sketch of the unhappy husband.

Pierre le Trividie drew this portrait of the young Allais in 1935.
