Dennis Hopper art collection up for auction in New York
NEW YORK (AP) — Works of art, memorabilia and decorative arts that belonged to the late "Easy Rider" film star, Dennis Hopper, are going on the auction block in New York.
Among the highlights is a portrait by Andy Warhol titled "Mao." The auction house says Hopper shot two bullet holes into the portrait of the Chinese communist leader after a wild night in the early 1970s.
Christie's says Warhol circled the holes and labeled them "warning shot" and "bullet hole." It says the two men agreed to call the work a collaboration.
The screenprint has a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000.
The Jan. 11-12 sale also has posters from Hopper's movies, including "Apocalypse Now" and "Blue Velvet." Most are estimated to sell for $200 to $500.
