Go with E.

(B) The art-viewing public wished to see traditional subjects treated in a nontraditional manner.
- No.

(C) Paintings that depict a recognizable physical world rather than the emotional world of the artist's life require more artistic talent to create.
- Can't tell

(D) The general public is unable to understand the theories on which abstract painting is based.
- No.

(E) The artistic preferences of the art-viewing public stimulated the revival.
