Angelina Jolie to sell mosque picture

US actress Angelina Jolie is set to sell a painting created by Winston Churchill during World War II.

US actress Angelina Jolie is set to sell a painting created by Winston Churchill during World War II.

The actress will put up for auction Churchill's painting named "Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque" in Marrakech, Morocco.

The Moroccan landscape owned by Jolie is expected to fetch up to £1.5million. Originally gifted to Franklin D. Roosevelt, the painting is being sold by the Jolie Family Collection as part of Christie’s modern British art auction in London on March 1.

Churchill began painting scenes of Morocco after being encouraged to visit the country by his painting tutor, Sir John Lavery.

Jolie bought the painting with her former husband, Brad Pitt, in 2011 for an undisclosed amount.
