You can do it like this.
Function DeletePictures()
Dim TargetShape As Shape


   If Sheet20.Type <> xlWorksheet Then Exit Function
   
   For Each TargetShape In Sheet20.Shapes
      If TypeOf TargetShape.DrawingObject Is Picture And TargetShape.Name <> "Picture 1" Then 
          TargetShape.Delete
     End If
