Who painted these 10 Popes?

Last week was a bit more of a challenge - and a lot of you still got the correct answer (see Who Painted This #15 - The Answer below).

However one person was so miffed by the challenge that they decided to award last week's post a "one star" because they hated it!  I think they must have been a tad frustrated.......

You can find out the names of all the people who got the correct answer at the end.

Call me perverse if you like but I guess I'll be frustrating a few more people this week.  That's because this week - in honour of a momentous event - I have a challenge which should keep all "who painted this?" fans occupied for most of the week!

The winner will be the person who comes up with the MOST correct answers - so do not despair if you can't get them all!

"Who painted this? #16" - Who painted these 10 Popes?

In honour of a very courageous decision - one which had me spouting "Popes can't resign!" when I found out.  I reflected on it and decided he is probably a very wise man.

Clue:  No artist is repeated but one Pope is repeated.  There's the odd clue lying around....
