It's A.

As many as 300 of the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt may actually be the works of his students or other admirers.

- "attribute to" is correct idiom

But don't we need "of" just before "other" ??
I think we don't:

Else we should write:

works of his students or of his other admirers.

In the original sentence "his" is taking care of both "students" and "other admirers"

Any opinions?

yes, because the students and admirers are both "his" his student or his admirers

(A) the 720 paintings attributed to Rembrandt may -> sounds good, hold it

(B) the 720 paintings attributed to be Rembrandt’s might-> to-be is awkward usage

(C) the 720 paintings that were attributed to be by Rembrandt may-> to be awkward usage

(D) the 720 Rembrandt paintings that were once attributed to him might-> 's is required, eliminate it

(E) Rembrandt’s paintings, although 720 were once attributed to him, may -> awkward construction, eliminate it.

No, if this is corrected then it will be a case of possessive poison. HIM, a non-possessive pronoun, cant be used with a possessive noun.

Attributed to is right here.
Usage of might is wrong here.
might - when the outcome is uncertain
Might - past tense of May

that were attributed to be changes the meaning of the sentence. It means that the painting is actually not his.

Also, I guess the main subject lacks a verb when relative clause is used. (Can be my poor quality identify SV as well)

should be A.

B, C --> attributed to be (incorrect idiom)
E --> 'him' does not have an antecedent ( remember possive cases are poor antecedents?)

(D) the 720 Rembrandt paintings that were once attributed to him might

was not sure about D but found that 'Rembrandt' is used as a modifier here and it modifies paintings, suggesting that there are some kind of paintings. This leaves 'him' without an antecedent
