Lovecraftwritten in September and first published in the October issue of Weird Tales. It was adapted for television in a episode of the Night Gallery anthology series, starring Bradford Dillman. The story revolves around a Bostonian painter named Richard Upton Pickman who creates horrifying images. His works are brilliantly executed, but so graphic that they result in the revocation of his membership in the Boston Art Club and he is shunned by his fellow artists.
The narrator is a friend of Pickman, who, after the artist’s mysterious disappearance, relates to another acquaintance how he was taken on a tour of Pickman’s personal pickmam, hidden away in a run-down backwater slum of the city.
As the two delved deeper into Pickman’s mind and art, the rooms seemed to grow lovecragt more evil and the paintings ever more horrific, ending with a final enormous painting of an unearthly, red-eyed and vaguely canine humanoid balefully chewing on a human victim. A noise sent Pickman running outside the room with a gun while the narrator reached out to unfold what looked like a small piece of rolled paper attached to the monstrous painting.
El Modelo de Pickman : H P Lovecraft :
The narrator heard some shots lovrcraft Pickman walked back in with the smoking gun, telling a story of shooting some rats, and the two men departed. Afterwards the narrator realized that he had nervously grabbed and put the rolled paper in his pocket when the shots were fired. He unrolled the paper to reveal that it is a photograph not of the background of the painting, but of the subject.
Pickman drew his inspirations not from a diseased imagination, but from monsters that were very much real. Like the Brooklyn neighborhood portrayed in Lovecraft’s ” The Horror at Red Hook “, Boston ‘s North End is depicted as a rundown section inhabited by immigrants and honeycombed by subterranean passageways. What do maps and records and guide-books really tell of the North End? At a guess I’ll guarantee to lead you to thirty or forty alleys and networks of alleys north of Prince Street that aren’t suspected by ten living beings outside of the foreigners that swarm them.
Though the story is vague about the precise location of Pickman’s studio, it was apparently inspired by an actual North End building. Pickman’s aesthetic principles of horror resemble those in Lovecraft’s essay ” Supernatural Horror in Literature ” —on which he was working at the time the short story was composed. Thurber’s description of Pickman as a “thorough, painstaking, and almost scientific realist ” recalls Lovecraft’s approach to horror in his post- Dunsanian phase.
The technique is unusual for Lovecraft.
The first-person narrative takes the form of a monologue directed at the reader in effect as a fictive listener, whose presumed interjections are implied via the narrator’s responses to them.
Tangential comments reveal that the conversation takes place in the narrator’s Boston drawing room at eve, where the two lvecraft just arrived via taxi. Pickman’s narrative-within-the-narrative is also a monologue, directed in turn at the outer narrator as listener.

Both narratives are colloquial, casual and emotionally expressive, which is atypical of Lovecraft’s protagonists and style. Fritz Leiberin his essay “A Literary Copernicus”, praised the story for the “supreme chill” of its final line.
Lovecraft Encyclopedia dismisses the story as “relatively conventional”. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
