We commonly speak of aesthetic judgments as subjective, and in the short term they are, since critics often disagree about the value of a particular contemporary work of art. But over time, the subjective element disappears. When works of art have continued to delight audiences for centuries, as have the paintings of Michelangelo, the music of Bach, and the plays of Shakespeare, we can objectively call them great.

The statements above best support which of the following conclusions?
(A) When Michelangelo, Bach, and Shakespeare were alive, critics disagreed about the value of their work.
(B) The value of a contemporary work of art cannot be objectively measured.
(C) The reputation of a work of art often fluctuates greatly from one generation to the next.
(D) The mere fact that a work of art has endured for centuries does not establish its greatness.
(E) If critics agree about the value of a particular cotemporary work of art, then the work can objectively be called great.

Agree with (B).

Since the work of art can be objectively measured when it is measured objecctively for centuries. Thus, contemporary arts can not be measured objectively.

(A) When Michelangelo, Bach, and Shakespeare were alive, critics disagreed about the value of their work.
No reference to what happened when they were alive.
(B) The value of a contemporary work of art cannot be objectively measured. rings true.
(C) The reputation of a work of art often fluctuates greatly from one generation to the next.
not necessarily, since the work of the maestros mentioned did not.
(D) The mere fact that a work of art has endured for centuries does not establish its greatness.
but that's exactly what the argument concludes.
(E) If critics agree about the value of a particular cotemporary work of art, then the work can objectively be called great.
greatness is not confined to the judgements of contemporary critics of art, as per the argument.

I'm with B too

The argument is that the value of a contemporary work of art is subjective but that the subjective element disappears over time.

It follows that the value of a contemporary work of art cannot be objectively measured.

B here too. Every other answer is out of scope. B is closest to the argument's evidence.
