Angelina Jolie sells painting by Winston Churchill, fetches record-price at auction

Mar 02, 2021 10:00 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A rare painting by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, which was a gift from him to US President Franklin D. Roosevelt, has become the most expensive painting by Churchill to sell at auction.

The 'Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque' a Moroccan landscape was sold by Angelina Jolie fetching approximately £8.3 million on the 1st of March.

The image of the 12th century mosque in Marrakech at sunset is reportedly the only painting Churchill completed during WWII.

The painting reportedly had many owners before Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt bought it in 2011, and now sold by the Jolie family for a Christie's sale in London.
