Dennis Hopper dies -- his photos live on
As an artist, Dennis Hopper, who died today at age 74, was best known in the movie world. His long list of credits is amazing -- and includes a holy trinity of outsider classics such as "Rebel Without a Cause," "Cool Hand Luke" and "Easy Rider."
But he had a broader love of art, and though he's not the most famous Hopper in the art world, his prints and photographs have sold for tens of thousands of dollars. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has one of his photos, as does Harvard University.
His work is chronicled in a number of books, including "Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967," a limited edition (autographed by Hopper) published by Taschen. Hopper's subjects ranged from Tina Turner and Andy Warhol (who turned the tables in the painting shown here) to Martin Luther King Jr.
