Most commentators on Baroque painting consider Caravaggio an early practitioner of that style , believing that his realism and novel use of the interplay of light and shadow broke sharply with current styles of Caravaggio's time and significantly influenced 17th century Baroque painting. One must therefore either abandon the opinion of this majority of commentators or reject Mather's definition of Baroque painting, which says that for any painting to be considered Baroque , it must display opulence, heroic sweep, and extravagance.

The conclusion of the argument can be properly drawn if which one of the following is assumed ?

A. Paintings that belong to a single historical period typically share many of the same stylistic features.

B. A painter who makes the use of interplay of light and shadow need not for that reason be considered a nonrealistic painter.

C. Realism was not widely used by painters prior to the 17th Century.

D. A realistic painting usually doesn't depict the world as opulent,heroic, or extravagant

E. Opulence, heroic sweep, and extravagance are not present in Caravaggio's paintings.

E it is. Directly talks about the link of Opulence, heroic sweep, and extravagance in Caravaggio's paintings.
