Please check my approach to the following questions, I know I'm doing some stuff wrong...
Cezanne's art inspired the next generation of artists, twentieth-century modernist creators of abstract art. While most experts rank Cezanne as an early modernist, a small few reject this idea. Francoise Cachin, for example, bluntly states that such an ascription is "overplayed" and says that Cezanne's work is "too often observed from a modern point of view."
Which one of the following statements is most strongly supported by the information above?
(A) Cezanne's work is highly controversial [overstates]
(B) Cezanne was an early creator of abstract art [confuses early modernist w/ abstract art creator]
(C) Cezanne's work helped to develop modernism [correct answer - I don't get it, what about Francoise Cachin who says such an ascription is "overplayed"]
(D) Modern art owes less to Cezanne than many experts believe [I chose this answer - why is this wrong?](E) Cezannes work tens to be misinterpreted as modernist [I didn't even read this far down, I thought I found my answer and moved on. "Misinterpreted as modernist" doesn't seem to equal "overplayed"]
D is wrong because it is stated that modern art does indeed owe alot to Cezannes. You may chose this if you take the "small fews" opinion as fact. Reading this question and looking at that choice I re-read the first sentence and it negates this option in my opinion. I know my explanation is kind of jumbled and confusing... hope it may help at some level. Now my brain hurts, lol.
