If you need a lesson in how to handle yourself in a breakup, please look no further than Angelina Jolie, who just sold a painting given to her by Brad Pitt for over $11 million. According to People, the painting in question is"Tower of Koutoubia Mosque" by Winston Churchill, and it was sold by the Jolie Family Collection for $11.5 million at a London art auction this past Monday.

Per a press release from auction house Christie's:

"Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque was created following the Casablanca Conference where it was agreed by the Allied forces that only complete surrender by the Axis powers would be acceptable. It is the only work that Churchill painted during the war, perhaps encouraged by the recent progress made by the Allies in what he considered to be one of the most beautiful countries he had encountered."

The painting was originally gifted from Churchill to Franklin D. Roosevelt, and was last sold at auction in 2011 for $2.95 million. According to Page Six, the buyer was Brad Pitt, who gave the painting to Angie. I mean...making over $8 million on a gift your ex gave you? Inspiring, to say the least.

Please excuse me, I'm going to go try to figure out if this weird Valentine's Day stuffed bear my ex gave me is worth anything.
