Can YOU Identify The Artists Behind The Art?

We recently viewed the private collection that's part of the estate of the late Peggy and David Rockefeller on view at Christie's in Manhattan prior to auction.
David Rockefeller was the last of the Rockefeller brothers, the oldest living member of the Rockefeller family and the family patriarch from August 2004 until his death in March. Rockefeller was a son of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, and a grandson of John D. Rockefeller and Laura Spelman Rockefeller.
He was noted for his wide-ranging political connections and foreign travel, in which he met with many foreign leaders. His fortune was estimated at $3.3 billion at the time of his death in March 2017.
The number of items in this vast collection was staggering. But, perhaps most dazzling were the priceless works of art by Monet, Degas, Picasso, Talouse-Lautrec, Kandinsky, Renoir, van Gogh Manet, Calder, Mir and so many others.
Take a look at the paintings from the collection (shown below) and see if you can link each one with its famous creator. Good luck!
