Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt once bought this painting by Winston Churchill, and now it’s for sale

A historical painting that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt bought during their marriage is expected to fetch between $ 2.1 million and $ 3.4 million in auction next month. Christie’s will sell the landscape painted by then Prime Minister Winston Churchill as part of a British Modern Art event on March 1st. The amateur painter Churchill presented the piece entitled “Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque” to President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a memento of their time together at the Casablanca Conference and the visit to nearby Marrakech in January 1943. There the two states discussed and heads of government on their plan to defeat the Nazis in World War II. Churchill produced an estimated 500 paintings, but this is the only one he did during the war years.
