1. I didn't know that about Degas.

I guess I'd make only a brief reference to it, though, since it isn't especially relevant to his art. Some great artists, musicians, etc., held reprehensible views, and discussing them can be problematic. The composer Wagner is another example. He was a pretty rabid anti-Semite, even for his time, but there's nothing in his operas that reflects this. He became controversial well after his death, when Hitler and the Nazis lauded his operas for their depiction of Germanic mythological figures, along with the overt anti-Semitism in his writings. Degas doesn't have that kind of association, though.
