There is no mystery as to why figurative painting revived in the late 1970s. People want to look at recognizable images. Sorting out art theories reflected in abstract paintings is no substitute for the sense of empathy that comes from looking at a realistic painting of a figure in a landscape. Perhaps members of the art felt that its lack of realistic subject matter was a rejection of the viewers and their world.

Which one of the following most accurately expresses the main point of the passage?

(A) Abstract paintings often include or forms that are suggestive of real objects or emotions.

(B) The art-viewing public wished to see traditional subjects treated in a nontraditional manner.

(C) Paintings that depict a recognizable physical world rather than the emotional world of the artist's life require more artistic talent to create.

(D) The general public is unable to understand the theories on which abstract painting is based.

(E) The artistic preferences of the art-viewing public stimulated the revival.

I think its E, it relates more to the passage
(why figurative painting revived --> people relate/sense looking at a realistic painting --> Perhaps members of the art felt that its lack of realistic subject matter was a rejection)

I'm not sure about significance of "Perhaps" though !

Perhaps, I'm got the wrong lead :wink:

According to PowerScore in Main Point questions we need to find an answer that rephrase/restate the conclusion of the Argument. Finding a conclusion in the above question is difficult. Here the conclusion is There is no mystery as to why figurative painting revived in the late 1970s. We have to find an answer which rephrase or restate the idea or concept of the conclusion. Only option E does that. So correct answer.
