Cezanne's art inspired the next generation of artists, twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art. While most experts rank Cezanne as an early modernist, a small few reject this idea. Francoise Cachin, for example, bluntly states that such an ascription is "overplayed", and says that Cezanne'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. Cezanne's work is highly controversial.
B. Cezanne was an early creator of abstract art.
C. Cezanne's work helped to develop modernism.
D. Modern art owes less to Cezanne than many experts believe.
E. Cezanne's work tends to be misinterpreted as modernist.

I go for C as well for the following reasons:
A: Only a small few reject the ideas of most experts. So not highly controversial.
B: Cezanne's work influenced creators of abstract art, she did not necessarily create it herself.
D: D sounds too strong
E: There is no conclusion that Cezanne's work is not modernist in the paragraph. So, no question of misinterpretation.
C is framed in such a manner that it does not oppose anything that is said in the argument.
All other choices have very strong statements
A - too strong (only few ppl oppose the common thought)
B - It goes too far to say that he actually created abstract art while the argument only states that Cezanne's art inspired modern & abstract art
C - does not oppose anything mentioned in argument
D - Very tempting, this would be my second bet, but the way it is framed it appears that there is a significant proportion of people who reject the opinion of the experts who believe Cezanne inspired modern art
E - Again the points in the statement are extrapolated a little too far
Its not B because the stem says "twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art" implies that mordenist approach to abstract art is one of many kinds of abstract art and the painter was one of the earlier creaters of "Mordernist kind of abstract art" and not "Cezanne was an early creator of abstract art." . Did I stretch it too far
A seems too broad and the stem doesn't support that since a very few thought otherwise.
