The Easy Rider and Blue Velvet star died, aged 74, on May 29, 2010, at his home in Venice after a long battle with prostate cancer.

A police source told RadarOnline.com: "As yet nobody has come forward with any information regarding the image of Dennis Hopper that was stolen on Saturday."

The photograph - which Lee only loaned to the exhibit - was snatched by somebody who ran into the exhibit as the crowds had left and the space was being cleaned-up.

Lee's publicist Nancy Iannios said: "Jason was very upset when he found out that the image was stolen from the exhibit.

"He put up the reward in the hope somebody would return it because as a photographer it means a lot to him.
