Nice Question: deserves Kudos.

Though considered aesthetically primitive at the time, Henri Rousseau has become an iconic figure of Post-Impressionism for his dream-like canvases painted like he was naive.

Let us first understand the meaning of the sentence.
- Something is considered aesthetically primitive at the time.
- Henri Rousseau has become an iconic figure of Post-Impressionism because he painted his dream like canvas, like a naive.

POE:
A• Henri Rousseau has become an iconic figure of Post- Impressionism for his dream-like canvases painted like he was naive.
Meaning wise option implies that HR has become iconic for this dream-like canvas, such meaning is wrong.
Further, "like he was naive" like never follows a clause.

B• Henri Rousseau’s canvases, painted in a naive, dream-like style, later established the artist as an icon of Post-Impressionism.
Canvases can be considered aesthetically primitive this portion goes fine with non underlined part, and these canvases established HR as iconic figure.
This option is parallel in meaning with original choice.

C• Henri Rousseau painted canvases in a naive, dream-like style that has become an icon of Post-Impressionism.
Meaning error. Here option says style has become an icon of Post-Impressionism rather HR has become icon as per original meaning.

D• Henri Rousseau’s canvases were painted in a naive, dream- like style that was later iconic of Post-Impressionism.
Same meaning error as explained in above choice. further , "style that was later iconic of Post-Impressionism" sounds awkward not a valid construction.

E• the canvases of Henri Rousseau are icons of Post- Impressionism due to being painted in a naive, dream-like style.
Again meaning error canvases are icons rather than HR is. Due to is wrong because is required. Evil "being" is present.

(A) Henri Rousseau has become an iconic figure of Post- Impressionism for his dream-like canvases painted like he was naive.
(B) Henri Rousseau’s canvases, painted in a naive, dream-like style, later established the artist as an icon of Post-Impressionism.
(C) Henri Rousseau painted canvases in a naive, dream-like style that has become an icon of Post-Impressionism.
(D) Henri Rousseau’s canvases were painted in a naive, dream- like style that was later iconic of Post-Impressionism.
(E) the canvases of Henri Rousseau are icons of Post- Impressionism due to being painted in a naive, dream-like style.

it is not the artist that was considered aesthetically primitive - therefore, A and C are out.
B looks good, as it conveys the intended meaning - it is the artist who became an icon of post-impressionism, not his canvases. Because of this same reason, D and E are out.
