Identity of the Details

Show of hands -- how many of you identified the paintings from the details in the Google Art Project post? Here they are:
Detail: Giovanni Bellini, St. Francis in the Desert, 1475-1480,  oil and tempera on poplar (The Frick)
Detail: Pieter Bruegal the Elder, The Harvesters, 1565, oil on wood (The Met) 
Detail: Sando Botticelli, The Birth of Venus, 1483-1485, tempera on panel (The Uffizi)
Pretty amazing, huh?
