National Gallery
Edgar Degas, Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando, 1879
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.
