Stervende Adonis (Dying Adonis, 1609)[1][2] is a painting by Hendrick Goltzius, currently at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.

Alternate title is Het bloed van de dode Adonis verandert in een anemoon (Ovidius, Met.X 735), The blood of the dead Adonis turns into an anemone (Ovid, Met. X 735).

It is an example of a radically foreshortened figure.
