Dennis Hopper's Art Collection Going Up For Auction

With Dennis Hopper no longer with us, his vast collection of art, which includes some rather interesting pieces, is finally going up for sale.

Dennis was known as an avid collector of art. Among the 300 pieces in his collection are some rare prints from Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. In fact, Dennis famously shot two bullet holes through Warhol's portrait of Mao Zedong back in the day. Warhol called him a collaborator and now, the "Mao" piece is one of the high-ticket items going up for sale. The 1972 colored screenprint is expected to bring $20,000 to $30,000.

All of Dennis' pieces will be up for auction at Christie’s next week and being a photographer and painter himself, perhaps there might be a piece or two of his up for grabs as well.

We're sure it'll be one of the more interesting collections to behold. No doubt someone is going to walk away with some amazing pieces of art.

One question though - where's all the money from this auction going? Not to his ex-wife, we hope!

    The man had a great eye for art, he picked up many pieces before the artists became known and did very well with his investments. His collection is superb.
