I too would go with E.
But, I later thought that destinies should be used since it refers to many. If this s-v agreement in mind, I choose B. But, I can see that B twists the meaning a little.

E has a modifier problem.

Sentence reads fine as is.

(A)

[quote="selene"]While few truly great artists consider themselves visionary, many lesser talents boast about their own destiny to lead the way to higher artistic ground.

A) While few truly great artists consider themselves visionary, many lesser talents boast about their own destiny to lead the way to higher artistic ground.
---> looks fine, leave here first.

B) While many lesser talents boast about their own destinies to lead the way to higher ground, few truly great artists consider themselves as visionary.
----> consider sb adj/ sth is the correct idiom. Consider sb as adj is wrong.

C) Many lesser talents boast about their own destiny to lead the way to higher artistic ground while few truly great artists consider themselves as being visionary.
----> same error to B.

D) Few truly great artists consider himself or herself a visionary while many lesser talents boast about their own destinies to lead the way to higher artistic ground.
----->D is redudant with " consider himself or herself a visionary"

E) While many lesser talents boast about their own destiny, few truly great artists consider themselves visionary, to lead the way to higher artistic ground.

----->" to lead ...." must follow " own destiny" to keep the original meaning.

Go for A.

I pick A.

Agree with laxieqv. "to lead the way" must follow "destiny".
