I remember reading as a child a story with the following plot: someone has just bought a painting that depicts a house surrounded by vegetation (shrubs? woods?). As time passes, the owner sees that the painting changes day after day: a man appears out of the vegetation and approaches the house, enters by a window, then exits (I can't recall if he exits carrying the body of a young woman or not) and disappears.
The owner of the painting then discovers that the house depicted was actually the place in which a woman had been murdered (or kidnapped? I can't remember precisely) previously, and the criminal had never been found.
I haven't been able to find this story among my collection of Poe short stories, but the style was, as far as I recall, very much like Poe's.
