Nice list. You've mostly included prominent figures but not contemporary ones. So, I've have a question. Where the hell is Andy Warhol????
I don't know why they didn't include it but I believe he's already well known enough and we don't need to praise him even more. He's been worshipped enough in the last 50 years anyway.
I was deeply impressed by the book Wild Things "by Maurice Sendak. The illustrator was an incredibly talented person.
