American actor Johnny Depp on Thursday sold a collection of prints he created of Hollywood and rock icons for 3 million pounds (3.5 million francs). These prints were made from images created on a computer.
They represent in particular Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino or Keith Richards. They were on sale online at Castle Fine Art, which runs a network of galleries in Britain, Johnny Depp wrote on Instagram on Thursday.
The collection of prints, titled “Friends and Heroes,” was “a testament to those he knew well and those who inspired him,” the gallery said.
The gallery’s website, on which 780 pieces were for sale, was saturated with requests. Buyers notably paid 17,800 francs for a set of four framed prints or 4,700 francs for one print.
In June, the actor won ten million dollars in a libel suit against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, 36. Ms. Heard appealed.
