The Associated Press reports that works of art, memorabilia and decorative arts that belonged to the late Dennis Hopper, who passed away from cancer last year, are going up for auction in New York City.
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! That's what I call art.
The screen-print has a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000.
The sale will take place between January 11th and 12th and includes posters from Hopper films, such as Apocalypse Now and Blue Velvet.
