The collection of over 40 pieces, owned by the late actor, went under the hammer at Christie's auction house and fetched over $10 million.

Artwork owned by late actor Dennis Hopper has fetched over $10 million at auction. The pieces came under the spotlight before the "Easy Rider" star's death in May, when he filed legal papers accusing his estranged wife Victoria Duffy of stealing artworks from him while he was battling cancer.

The collection of over 40 pieces, including a portrait of the actor by Andy Warhol and works by Robert Graham and British graffiti artist Banksy, went under the hammer at Christie's auction house in New York last week.

The New York Post reports the lot fetched just over $10 million. Another sale of Hopper's artwork is expected to take place in January 2011.
