Group E

France's Claude Monet and Switzerland's Paul Klee square off in the battle of the early modernists, but are their spots in the knockout rounds secure? Or can the father of contemporary Honduran art, Pablo Zelaya Sierra, and the Ecuadorian master painter Oswaldo Guayasamin derail the European giants' bid for the title by winning one of the group's top spots?

Group F

It's all to play for in group F, as four less well-known artists collide. The Argentine master of port pictures Benito Quinquela Martín and the great Bosnian history painter Mersad Berber are dark horses, but they face stiff competition from Iran's Parviz Tanavoli and Nigeria's Sokari Douglas Camp, two sculptors who have attracted critical acclaim across Europe.

Group G

Germany's mathematician, theorist and Northern Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer steps up as a late substitute for Peter Paul Rubens, whose Flemish roots ruled him ineligible. The presence of American pop art powerhouse Andy Warhol and Portugal's folk-inspired feminist painter Paula Rego alongside the great engraver makes this the group of death. With only two places available to progress to the next round, can Ghanaian underdog Kofi Antubam shock the establishment?

Group H

The final group sees Belgian surrealist René Magritte lining up against the Russian forefather of abstraction Wassily Kandinsky. Algerian still life painter Hocine Ziani represents the realist corner​ with Korean artist Kim Hong-do (better known as Danwon), whose representations of domestic life were comparable to the masters of the Dutch golden age.
