Calculation Puzzle

queen sacBlack to Play and Win

Looking through Chess Review from 1956, I came across the forgotten amateur game Collins - Rankis, New York State Championship 1956 (PGN here). In the position above, Black is up a pawn and can eventually win by many means, but the puzzle really asks you to find Black's most stunning, artistic, and forceful method.
