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.
