Yeah some of them are hard to tell.

AFAIK, Tchaikovsky didn't play the trumpet...

I don't think he did, but do you think all the objects are relevant?

It might be easier if we could get a version without the numbers, which could be hiding important details.

74 Salvador Dali?

I'm not sure we'll ever get the answers, unfortunately.

It got a bit messy here. Someone should summarize it, or the one made by Corribus is correct?

I am continually updating my first post as new answers come in.

@Angelspit - we already have Dali. :)

82. is definitely George W. Bush.
84. could be Yao Ming, but its a guess based on his height.

So why does Bush have a telescope?

Could 88 be Socrates?

He's trying to stay at a safe distance from Dick Cheney...

Hmm, I'd rather say it's Humphrey Bogart. Though the objects may seem inappropriate sometimes, a smoking Oppenheimer wouldn't make sense to me...

Definitely not. That guy's bald. Himmler wasn't bald.

20 I vote for Wyatt Earp since Teddy Roosevelt had another type of hat.
32 has some Tschaikovsky similarity
35 Pablo Picasso?
75 Toulouse Lautrec
82 I support the Bush idea. several of my friends recognized him also.
92 I would say Leonardo Da Vinci, but it's much too dark skinned. Strange that he's not there.
the 94 is missing from your list Corribus

74 - Marcel Duchamp. Looks like him, but maybe I'm just being fooled by the painting.

The only reason I recognized the picture was because I had thought about buy that book at the bookstore on many occasions. :)

List updated!

uh, we're not getting the answers? Well we could cross-reference with AOH.

And is it certain that each person is a different one. In other words there are no repeats?
