Reverse Side Of a Painting[1] (1670) is an oil on canvas by Flemish painter Cornelis Norbertus Gysbrechts, currently in the collection of the Statens Museum for Kunst in Denmark. The recto side of the painting depicts the verso side of an oil on canvas.

Gysbrechts painted an inner frame and outer frame, upon which the canvas is mounted, little nails fixing the inner frame to the outer frame and a small piece of paper with the inventory number "36". The painting itself is unframed, its back is the usual back of an oil painting: Gysbrecht's picture is the only picture of the world with two backs, so to speak.
