Cézanne’s art inspired the next generation of artists,
twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art.
While most experts rank Cézanne as an early
modernist, a small few reject this idea. Françoise
Cachin, for example, bluntly states that such an
ascription is “overplayed,” and says that Cézanne’s
work is “too often observed from a modern point of
view.”
Which one of the following statements is most
strongly supported by the information above?
(A) Cézanne’s work is highly controversial.
(B) Cézanne was an early creator of abstract art.
(C) Cézanne’s work helped to develop modernism.
(D) Modern art owes less to Cézanne than many
experts believe.
(E) Cézanne’s work tends to be misinterpreted as
modernist.

Interesting question...OA later

I think that it's B.

The passage states that "a small few reject this idea." I can't really see how that says that his work is "highly controversial."

Both A and C are supported in the passage, but more emphasis is given towards A as the author later gives an example in favour of A.

(C) Cézanne’s work helped to develop modernism.
Cézanne’s art inspired the next generation of artists, twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art.

(A) Cézanne’s work is highly controversial.
While most experts rank Cézanne as an early modernist, a small few reject this idea.
Also the statement given by Françoise Cachin is bit strong.

How can it be (A).

While most experts rank Cézanne as an early modernist, a small few reject this idea.

How can it be highly controversial when only a small few reject the idea.

Will go with (B)

Guys OA is 'C'. This is one of the toughest CRs.

Here's OE

This correct answer is a paraphrase of the first sentence. The deceptiveness of this
answer lies in two areas:
1. The substitution of “develop” for “inspire.” Some students feel the word “develop” is too strong,
but if Cézanne inspired the creators of the next generation of art then he helped develop it.
2. The use of the word “modernism.” Some students are thrown off by “modernism” because they
expect to see “abstract” instead. The stimulus is careful about saying “twentieth-century
modernist creators of abstract art.” Notice how the test makers use answer choice (B)—which
mentions “abstract”—to subtly prepare you to make this error.
