Andy Warhol Self Portrait

Andy made himself into art several times in his career. His most famous is probably this one, from 1986.

Warhol died in New York City at 6:32 am on February 22, 1987, from a sudden post-operative cardiac arrhythmia. Before his coffin was lowered, Paige Powell dropped a copy of Interview magazine, which he co-founded, an Interview T-shirt, and a bottle of the Estee Lauder perfume “Beautiful” into the grave.
