Close enough - 3rd May 1808 is the more famous of the two paintings depicting a Spaniard being executed by firing squad. This one is 2nd May 1808 - Madrid which depicts the uprising against the French that led to the executions the following day.

What stands in front of the man in Jeff Widener's famous photography from June 5, 1989?

A Chinese tank.

No idea, but I'll take a chance. Benton?

Not Benton, although I can certainly see why you would guess that.

I've seen the painting before and I'm sure it's 1930s American - to be fair that's stating the bleeding obvious - but can't remember the artist.

1930 is right, but the artist is English.

Any more guesses before I pack up the easel on this one?

With the clue and Google I got to Edward Burra, whose work is very interesting - I'd never come across him before and glad you asked the question...

Edward Burra it is - I wonder if Edward Hopper was inspired by this painting to do Nighthawks?

Could have been - I read that they certainly met. From which very famous painting is this a detail?

Is it a Holbein?

No - even earlier than Holbein. The detail is a reflection of the actual painting imagining it viewed from behind.
