“Christie’s in London sold the Moroccan landscape painting Monday for a cool $11,590,715. The actress, who along with Brad Pitt bought it in 2011, had a rare piece of art…it’s believed to be the only wartime painting by the legendary Prime Minister of Great Britain,” the outlet reported.

Churchill painted “Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque” after the January 1943 Casablanca Conference, where he and President Franklin D. Roosevelt planned how to defeat Nazi Germany. The painting was meant as a momento to be given to FDR, depicting a 12th-century mosque in Marrakech at sunset.

It was eventually sold by the President’s son after his death. The painting then went through several owners before Brad and Angelina. It’s not yet known who purchased the piece, which broke its own previous sales record of around $2.5 million.

Angelina Jolie recently revealed the inspiration behind one of her newest films.
