You may not have known this about Angelina Jolie, but she is actually the owner of the only painting created by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during World War II…and that painting is now for sale!
The painting is actually being sold by the “Jolie Family Collection,” Christie’s, the famous auction house, revealed. The 45-year-old actress acquired the painting in 2011 but it is not known how.
“It is the only work that Churchill painted during the war, perhaps encouraged by the recent progress made by the Allies in what he considered to be one of the most beautiful countries he had encountered,” Nick Orchard, head of modern British art at auction house Christie’s, said in a statement via CNN.
The piece is expected to earn £1.5 million to £2.5 million ($2 million to $3.4 million) when sold.
The painting is called the “Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque” and Churchill painted it in Marrakech, Morocco, after attending the Casablanca Conference in January 1943.
If you missed it, Angelina mentioned her ex Brad Pitt very briefly in a new interview.
