If you need a lesson in dealing with a breakup literally a million years later look no further than Angelina Jolie, who just sold a painting Brad Pitt gave her for over $ 11 million.
According to People, the painting in question is “Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque” by Winston Churchill, and it was sold by the Jolie Family Collection for $ 11.5 million at an art auction in London last Monday.
According to a press release from Christie’s auction house:
“Koutoubia mosque tower was created as a result of the Casablanca Conference where allied forces agreed that only a complete surrender of the Axis powers would be acceptable. It is the only work Churchill painted during the war, perhaps encouraged by recent progress made by the Allies in what he considered to be one of the most beautiful countries he had encountered. “
The painting was originally offered by Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt and was last auctioned in 2011 for $ 2.95 million. According to Page six, the buyer was Brad Pitt, who gave the painting to Angie. I mean … earn over $ 8 million on a gift your ex gave you? Inspiring to say the least.
BRB is going to try to figure out if that weird Valentine’s Day teddy bear that my ex gave me is worth anything.
