what Degas had set up for himself.
"Degas worked at art in much the
same way the dancers worked at danc-
ing," says Rubin, a university writing
teacher who often returns to Michigan
to visit family and celebrate Jewish
holidays and events. "He drew the
same poses again and again, just as the

While Rubin offers a biography of
Degas, she does not delve into the
artist's anti-Semitism. She felt the sub-
ject was not pertinent to the segment
of his life covered in the exhibit and in
her book. .
Charles Dellheim-, professor and
chairman of the department of history
at Boston. University, has lectured in
Michigan on the art world past and

Semitism as strongest toward the end
of his lift. The professor explains that
the artist's attitude was not uncom-

moved in circles that included Jews
and had patrons who were Jews, but
the artist did not treat them well.
Degas' anti-Semitic feelings, which
even could be noted in an unflattering
depiction of a Jewish subject, caused a

When Degas' deteriorating vision
prevented him from reading newspa-
pers, the professor says, the dance
artist required that his maid read an
anti-Semitic publication to him.
"Degas was an ordinary anti-Semite
and an extraordinary painter,"
Dellheim says. "His views were
unpleasant and not to be ignored, but
it's not useful to bring them to the
exhibit as anything more than a side-
