Salvador Dali, Character Masquerading in Pinning Up a Butterfly," 1965; © Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, Figueres, Spain.
This isn't the sort of painting that most people usually associate with Dali, but it's been popular enough that the reproduction seen below has appeared online in various locations. The modern version is suspiciously yellow, erasing the naturalistic flesh tones seen in the original, and also obscuring a lot of the brushwork. It might be a digitally altered image, with heightened contrast and yellow-green tones added. Note that the Fundació adds "Portrait of Fortuny" to its title, and appears to have plenty of documentation to back up the information that appears there. However, since I wasn't able to confirm this aspect of the painting, I've omitted this mention in the title above.
