Last month, Christie’s Auction house revealed that the painting would be auctioned off by the Academy Award-winning actress.

However, now the artwork has a new owner as the 45-year-old was able to sell it off on Monday in London for the eye-popping price of $11,590,715.

The Moroccan painting was previously expected to be sold off for about $3 million.

A source told Page Six that the classic piece was gifted to Angelina by her ex Brad.

The painting, called “Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque,” was the only piece that Churchill created during World War II.

The famed historical figure produced the work in January of that year, in Marrakech after the Casablanca Conference.

Churchill invited FDR to the gathering so he could “share the views of the city and the light at sunset which he so revered,” the auction house shared.

The 32nd President was so moved by the scene that Churchill sought to paint it for his ally.

The head of Christie’s Modern British Art department explained: “‘Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque’ is therefore arguably the best painting by Winston Churchill due to the significance of the subject matter to him, and the fact that it highlights the importance of the friendship between the two leaders.

“The gifting of the work to Roosevelt underlines the fact that Churchill held the American President in such high regard and points to their joint efforts in guiding the Allied powers to the outcome of the Second World War.”

The painting is now the most expensive Churchill work ever.

An insider also told the outlet that the mother of six had the piece since 2011 when it was bought from New Orleans antique dealer M.S. Rau for $2.95 million.

The source added that Brad was the purchaser of the painting which then fell into the Jolie Family Collection.

The famed actor and art collector reportedly bought the work as a gift for Angelina, after being inspired by his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.

The former A-List couple had also previously shown interest in the topic, as they visited the U.K. Churchill War Rooms together on a private tour.

Brad and Angelina have been in a nasty divorce battle since 2016.

Though the proceedings finally went through three years later in April of 2019, the ex-pair has still not found peace.

In an interview with British Vogue’s March Global Creativity issue published this week, the Hollywood star referenced their divorce.

When asked if she was happy, the Maleficent actress explained: “I don’t know.

“The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body.

“I’m looking forward to my fifties – I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties.”

Angelina and Brad share six children – Maddox, Pax,  Shiloh, Zahara and twins Vivienne and Knox.

Their eldest, Maddox, has reportedly had a strained relationship with his father since an altercation that took place between his parents in 2015.
