New York (ANI): Late Dennis Hopper"s art collections have fetched
more than 10 million dollars, almost double the minimum estimate,
this week at a Christie's contemporary-art auction. The 'Easy Rider
star, who died in May, was an avid collector as well as a painter
and photographer himself, reports the New York Post.
Forty works he owned including pieces by Andy Warhol,
Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring went under the hammer.
Hopper's oldest daughter, Marin, and her co-executor, writer Alex
Hitz, celebrated on Friday at Swifty's on Lexington Avenue with
investor Richard Turley.
Despite the messy legal situation with Hopper's wife, Victoria
Duffy, who filed a 45 million dollar claim against his estate,
Marin confirmed that Hopper''s youngest child, 7-year-old Galen,
will receive 40 percent of the estate to be held in trust.
