From the last sentence, you can infer that the 20th century got rid of "this type of aesthetics" (judging work of art by its realistic representation).

(A) which is about "deemphasizing" realistic representation renders itself equivalent to the above interpretation.

Between A & C, I pick A.
Repudiate seems too strong.

One of the most hardest question that we can find on the GMAT and what makes it hard is the vocabulary...

OA is A

B- No mention about Modern critics --- Out of the Scope

C- weaken the argument

D- traditional ways , Out of the Scope

E- could be an assumption but not a conclusion.....

Only A mentions that the 20th century revolution is different than 19th century one ...
