A Picture of Nectar is the third official studio album and first on a major-label by the American rock band Phish, released on February 12, 1992, through Elektra Records. The album is dedicated to Nectar Rorris, the proprietor of Nectar's in Burlington, Vermont, where Phish played their first bar gig followed by a series of monthly three night stands, saying that the experience "taught us how to play."

The songs on A Picture of Nectar explore a variety of musical genres, including jazz, country, calypso, rock and roll and neo-psychedelia. The song "Manteca" is a cover of the song by jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie; in Phish's short version, the melody line is sung as a goofy nonsense phrase. "Poor Heart" is written in bluegrass style.

All songs on the album have been performed live by the band, though the instrumental tracks have become relative rarities after the mid-1990s. The short instrumental, "Faht," written by drummer Jon Fishman, has only been performed live twelve times, the last in 1995. The album was certified gold by the RIAA on November 15, 2001.

JEMP records has once again brought in Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering to remaster the record from its original analog tapes. The 2LP set was pressed by Furnace MFG on 180 gram vinyl. This limited numbered first run release totals 7500 units.

"... A Picture of Nectar is in many ways their best and most accomplished album." -Jim Smith,
