2. I think it's easy to forget or ignore the deep vein of anti-Semitism

that existed in France at that time. Are you familiar with the Dreyfus Affair? The idea that such injustice should be "state-approved" is an indication of how normalized such views were. Maybe it would help if you had a few sentences describing the political atmosphere at the time and how of his time Degas was?

Evil people can create beauty. I don't think Degas was evil, just conventional in his political thought.
