The NOT ironic, or the serious representation of X missed from certain form of American art. The artists used only commonplace to depict certain scenarios, I.E to illustrators, advertisers, and packaging designers.

Hope this helps.

The artists of the 20th century avoided to embrace more adventurous path and at the same time more valuable to accept more common advertising to work with.

Hope this helps.

Doesn't the second part of the sentence mean that the artists stop using everyday life in illustrations?

I am not quite sure I get what you did mean.

However, the meaning of the sentence is this: the art of that time misses of a kind or representation. it dedicated to depicting the advertisements of the time.

Question:

The unironic representation of objects from everyday life is (i) _________ serious American art of the twentieth century: "high" artists ceded the straightforward depiction of the (ii) _________ to illustrators, advertisers, and packaging designers.

Explanation:


The unironic representation of objects from everyday life can be central to, peripheral or even absent in serious American art of the twentieth century. We don't know which of these. All the three choices offered - missing from, valued in and crucial to fit the blank perfectly.

So we move on to the sentence after the colon, knowing well that it explains or defines what comes before the colon. And it says:

"high" artists ceded the straightforward depiction of the (ii) _________ to illustrators, advertisers, and packaging designers.

The crucial word here is "ceded". It means "gave away". So I rewrite the sentence as:

"high" artists gave away the straightforward depiction of the (ii) _________ to illustrators, advertisers, and packaging designers.

Since the high artists gave away the straightforward depiction of whatever-it-maybe, it is no longer present in serious American art of the twentieth century. Therefore, missing from is the correct choice.

Now what did the "high" artists cede (give away) to the illustrators, advertisers and packaging designers? If the (unironic representation of) objects from everyday life is missing from serious American art, well, then it is that very thing that has been ceded. Therefore, commonplace is the correct choice.

OR

Since the (unironic representation of) objects from everyday life is missing from serious American art because it was ceded to the illustrators and designers, well, then it should be the word in the blank. We need "objects of everyday life" in the blank. Therefore, commonplace is the correct choice.

Some Notes:

The clue for the first blank is ceded.
The clue for the second blank is objects from everyday life

unironic representation = straightforward depiction
objects from everyday life = commonplace

So just plug and play!. Irony is a figure of speech, so it is not something literal. Unironic is therefore something literal or straightforward.
