DISCUSSION: A is the most common wrong answer on this question. I think it’s tempting because it feels similar to Gilliam’s attitude of defiance towards representational art.
But the similarities end there. On “author agrees” questions, you must interpret the statements literally. Interpreted literally, A is insane. Completely bonkers. I’ve seen few more insane statements on the LSAT.
No one would ever believe A. Not even that guy that made “Artist’s Shit”.
- This statement is crazy.
You must take LSAT statements literally. Interpreted literally, this statement is insane. For example, it would include “You should not worry if your painting is so aesthetically ugly that it literally frightens people to death”. No one believes that, including Gilliam.
- Gilliam’s art is abstract, so it’s unlikely he believes this.
- Lines 36-39 contradict this.
- CORRECT. Lines 30-34 show that Gilliam was concerned with showing the complexity of human experience. And the first paragraph shows that Gilliam was part of the Washington Color Field school, so presumably he liked their philosophy.
- Lines 36-39 show that Gilliam cared little for public expectations.
