Graham Sutherland: Somerset Maugham, 1949.
*
From Richard Rayner, writing for the 5/30/2010 LA Times: 

A famous 1949 portrait by artist Graham Sutherland shows Maugham sitting in a straight-backed chair, arms crossed, wearing a velvet smoking jacket, his face lined and desiccated, surveying the world with a withering mouth and unblinking superciliousness. He looks like a mandarin, superb, decadent, merciless — quite untouchable. And at that time he was.
