Pickman's Other Model
As adaptations go, it's not very true to the source material. Other than having an artist named Pickman who paints monsters from life, it doesn't have much to do with Lovecraft's original story.
That said, it IS a very Lovecraftian story, with references to elder races and the hideous habits of ghoulish creatures who dwell in nighted tunnels beneath our very feet. And I think Lovecraft might have liked the depiction of Pickman's studio, crowded with macabre paintings of ghouls going about their unspeakable acts.
While digging around I found an article from TV Guide which showed the making of the monster in Pickman's model, which I have posted above. And, should you wish to watch the Night Gallery version of Pickman's Model, here's the link to HULU:
