The furry monster and the naked girl

Here's a 2002 Chester Higgins, Jr., image of Dorothea Tanning in her New York home that ran with Grace Glueck's NY Times obituary. I love the painting in the background. Can anyone identify it?

Thanks, Paul, for posting info about the image.

I love it!! She was a towering talent!
