There are so many late 19C and early 20C paintings here that it is difficult to choose favorite works. But Renoir, always the same while changing has the most and must go first, followed by early Picasso and on his heels Matisse. There is little by Monet, Sisley early Gaugin, Cezanne and I do not remember a van Gogh. However there are several delightful primitives of H. Rousseau and finally Modigliani and his often look-alike Soutine. Of course there are other greats that I did not mention.
