Warhol's "Self-Portrait" with the look of death

The permanent collection at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth was, in my opinion, wide-ranging and of strong quality in painting. One of the well-known contemporary artists of whom it owned several canvases is Andy Warhol. I was struck by this Self-Portrait created in 1986, a year before his untimely death. The reason I was struck by it is it has the look of death, a ghostly look.
The painting is rather large, 9 feet square. Here's the link to the museum's website.
