Going with B and A. The first part was really confusing. I think the author is trying to make a point about how entrepreneurs inevitably sell whatever their patrons are willing to pay the price for. In this process the author says that the real art suffers because neither the idiotic buyers nor these equally idiotic self-professed connosieurs of art (the entrepreneurs) have any idea what good art is all about. I think that's the irony the author is trying to bring about.

Apparently therefore the author must also agree that real art calls for real suffering and not just fake ones.

The entrepreneurs claim that
1. They are artists
2. An artist must suffer for his art

What they do:
1. Sell off mediocre paintings to highest bidders (who are fools, btw)
2. Have well-laid tables

Putting these together, best choice for question 1 is B. They are not suffering, they are not producing quality art, but they claim they suffered for their work.

For question 2, again from the above inferences, the author believes that the artist must truly suffer to produce great art. This is reflected in choice A.
