A bullet-riddled Andy Warhol print owned by the late actor Dennis Hopper sold for $302,500 at auction. The print of a bright blue Mao Zedong with green lips was done in 1972 and Hopper put two bullet holes in it after mistaking the portrait for the real Mao during a wild night at his house. Hopper showed the the holes to Warhol and the pair agreed to call the work a collaboration. The print was among 300 items from Hopper's estate offered at Christie's auction house in New York. Hopper died last year of cancer.
