A should be it (1min 26s)

B. It permitted modern critics to appreciate the simplicity of primitive art.
<jugdemental statement and hence incorrect>
C. It repudiated the realistic of representation found in the art of the past.
<incorrect as repudiated is too strong>
D. It reinforced the traditional way of looking at and judging great art.
<"better riddance" and hence it did not reinforce, rather revolutionised the traditional way of looking at art>
E. It allowed art critics to understand the evolution and nature of art.
<who knows...too hard to conclude this from the given context>

Re: CR - aesthetic [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2004, 07:33
I think it is C.
It is clearly between A & C.

A - There is no deemphasis here. But, there is repudiation(refusal to recognize) of the type of aestheics. The part of the sentence "It is one of the permanent gains ...........that we are rid of this type of aesthetics"

You get rid of something when you refuse to acknowledge it or you donot like it at all.

Thus, C is the answer.

Paul or Olegc may wanna jump in here to clarify the answer.
