H.P. Lovecraft Collection, The: Pickman's Model
American author H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) is one of the masters of gothic horror literature from the early 20th century. Presented here for the first time are three different interpretations of Lovecraft's short story about a morbid painter named Richard Upton Pickman, who created from his fiendish brush "unbelievable loathsomeness and moral foetor". It is a tale that exemplifies Edgar Allan Poe's unity of effect principle. Lovecraft succeeded in painting a story as meticulously shocking in its realism as any painting from Richard Upton Pickman. The only question that remains is: Are you Pickman?
