Crab on its Back

Crab on its Back (Dutch: Een op zijn rug liggende krab) is an 1888 oil painting by Vincent van Gogh. It is a still life of a crab with a green background. The painting may have been inspired by a Japanese print of a crab by Hokusai. Van Gogh had seen this in a copy of the magazine Le Japon Artistique that his brother Theo van Gogh had sent him in September 1888. The painting is in the permanent collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
