Weird question. Never seen an official question similar to this one.

Anyway, I pick C

Even I would go with C.
Do these types of questions come in main GMAT... The answer choices are quite strange

I'd like to point out that (e) also makes sense. If the curator is on bad terms with the other person then it's logical she rejects the item.

If the piece is truly equisite then they'll make space for it by getting rid of another piece.

The curator is actually praising the painting which the person is donating so this does not mean that they are on bad terms. So best option to choose is C.
Hope it makes sense
