This very short video with Professor Dame Hermione Lee explores Viginia Woolf's interpretation of Walter Sickert's painting of Ennui. Woolf wrote an essay 'Walter Sickert: a conversation' on the painting of Ennui by Walter Richard Sickert in 1933. Woolf describes how she imagines the characters in the painting as an old publican, 'with his glass on the table before him and a cigar at his lips.'
