Dennis Hopper's Widow Stops Auction of His Art Collection

Dennis Hopper's widow has prevented the sale of part of his art collection. Victoria Duffy, who the actor was in the process of divorcing when he passed away from prostate cancer last year, successfully filed a restraining order to stop the auction of 32 items which she claimed had "sentimental and emotional value".

A spokesperson for Christie's Auction House said, "As a result of a title claim brought by Dennis Hopper's estranged wife, Christie's must withdraw 32 items from the sale until such time as the title claim is resolved."

Court papers state, "The basis for the temporary restraining order was that the co-trustees [of Dennis' estate] were about to irreparably injure the petitioner [Victoria] by selling irreplaceable personal property owned by the petitioner which had sentimental and emotional value."

The disputed items, which include pieces by American artists Bruce Conner and Sam Francis, have a combined value of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Court papers state: "The basis for the temporary restraining order was that the co-trustees (of Hopper's estate) were about to irreparably injure the petitioner (Duffy) by selling irreplacable personal property owned by the petitioner which had sentimental and emotional value."

An estimated 300 items have been handed over to Christie's auctioneers by the Easy Rider star's estate executors and, on Tuesday, an Andy Warhol print of Mao Zedong went under the hammer for $302,500 (£210,670).

The rest of the auction is scheduled wrap up on Wednesday.

She also demanded $10 million (£6.7 million) for alleged defamation during the pair's bitter divorce battle.

Administrators rejected the claim earlier this month, according to TMZ.com. However, estate officials insist Galen will be provided for in Hopper's will.
