A - wrong
B - correct from those / but "than he" incomplete ( need he was/him ) also uses "being"
C - correct than those / but "than he" incomplete ( need he was/him )
D - wrong "than the" / but "than he was" complete

my choice was between C , D

very dicy ...none of them seem correct

I will go with D - but not satisfied with my answer !!

B - makes it sound like Gustav Klimt was more interested in the exploration ... than himself. OUT
C - different - than. OUT

1) but E fails to complete the sentence
than he - should be - than him or than he was

2) If "different from" is the correct idiom then is
"different than" wrong ?? when to use what ?

(B) from those of the painters he inspired being more interested in the exploration of the unconscious than he

(C) than those of the painters he inspired who were more interested in the exploration of the unconscious than he

(D) than the painters he inspired because they were more interested in exploring the unconscious than he was Painting is being compared to painter so it is wrong

agree with you all (E) is correct. But are you sure that (C) and (E) are completely written. there is a 'was' missing in both of them. cheers
