OAs with "who" in the end will suit the pronoun antecedent Hands Holbein.
(b),(d) out

have been recognizing is incorrect,the sentence is not in a flow where Hands Holbein was recognized long ago and continuously was recognized by scholars.
(a) out

now (c) vs (e)
"being" usage is improper in (e), also, "and who"is incorrect , (and who -can be used when two different qualities of the subject is enlisted but when "as a "is already introduces in the sentence then only "who"will follow later in the line.

eg:-Jon is the guy who is known for his maths skills and who is the least recognized guy in sports.
Maria is known as a computer guru of the college who teaches software.

In C, who clearly refers to Hands Holbein. Others, it is ambiguous!

Here is a request, while you are posting questions. Please do not reveal the OA. If you want something explained, you can always ask - Justify the answer. Otherwise, those who are trying the question for the first time might be mislead.

And for sentence correction questions please underline as it takes longer time to solve the question.

Thanks!!

'and' in all the choices but C needs a parallel element, which is absent in all the choices.

In C, "who" refers to "a remarkably versatile artist", and "him" refers to "Hans Holbein the Younger"
Using "who" here to introduce new information

I think C is still wrong.

The question makes a contrast using "while", so "and" makes a wrong contribution to this question.

in D.
the idea in the ending clause is not closely connected with the beginning clause. ideas in the sentence are not closely connected. D is wrong.

this choice is hard to eliminated . but if we read C, clearly, choice D is much better.

D changes meaning, and D does not fit the structure "while...,scholars...."
