Paysage Fautif (English: Wayward Landscape) (1946) is a work by Marcel Duchamp. It consists of seminal fluid on Astralon backed by black satin and mounted on a wooden frame of c. 8 x 7 in. The item was included in a deluxe edition of Duchamp's Box in a Valise, (1935-41) that he presented to Maria Martins, his model for the nude figure in Etant donnés.

A genetic test of 1989 confirmed that the semen is that of Duchamp. The work is located at the Museum of Modern Art, Toyama, Japan.
