Angelina Jolie seems more determined than ever to erase all traces of the past with Brad Pitt and to do so she decided to auction off the gift (worth 3 million dollars) received from her ex-husband. It is a precious painting that, as Page Six reports, the Hollywood star would have given to Angelina in 2011 after finishing the filming of Inglourious Basterds.
It is a painting signed by Winston Churchill and to which Brad was particularly attached. A unique piece entitled The minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque and built in January 1943. Legend has it that the picture was painted when Churchill visited Marrakech, on the occasion of the Casablanca Conference. The British Prime Minister explored the Moroccan city accompanied by Roosevelt and at the end of the trip he created a painting that he decided to give to the American president.
Later the painting ended up in the hands of a collector from Nebraska, it was then bought by Norman G. Hickman, a famous film producer who after 15 years sold it to the Jolie Family Collection. The price of the painting at the time was around 2.9 million dollars. The star's gift, a reminder of the happy times of their love story, will be sold at auction by Jolie, with a base price of around 3 million dollars. According to some rumors, the sale of the work would be part of an agreement for the division of assets between the Brangelina family, while for others it would be the umpteenth challenge of Angelina against Brad.
It was 2005 when the passion between Jolie and Pitt broke out on the set of the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. At the time he was still married to Jennifer Aniston and the couple ended up at the center of gossip. In 2014 the wedding, which was attended by the couple's six children, then the farewell, two years later, and a tumultuous divorce, marked by a long and painful battle in court.
In the last period it seemed that between Angelina and Brad the serene had returned, also thanks to the actress's decision to move a short distance from her ex-husband to allow him to spend more time with his children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara , 15, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
