The Portrait

Adaptations

  • The story was the basis of an opera by Mieczysław Weinberg, The Portrait, composed in 1980.
  • The story was adapted for BBC Radio in 2002 as part of the BBC Radio 4 comedy series Three Ivans, Two Aunts and an Overcoat with the title "The Mysterious Portrait" and starred Stephen Moore.[4] This adaptation concludes with Chartkov arrogantly defying the image in the painting and paying a terrible price.
  • The Portrait - An upcoming English language feature film adaptation[5][6]
