"Degas, Miss La La, and the Cirque Fernando"

National Gallery
Edgar Degas, Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando, 1879
The Morgan Library & Museum, Murray Hill Friday April 12 2013 10:30 - 21:00
On loan from the National Gallery in London, Degas's 1879 painting of the female aerialist and circus star is joined here by his various preparatory studies for the finished canvas. It's a rare opportunity for New York viewers to goggle at Miss La La's derring-do, captured with Degas's signature immediacy, which even now makes you feel like you are there, under the big top with the crowds of la belle epoque.
