Angelina Jolie’s art purchases
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently attended a show for the artist Banksy, and Ang snagged a few choice pieces. We’re big fans of Banksy’s work and thought you might enjoy seeing the interesting mix Angelina purchased…

A $226,000 painting – titled “Picnic” – depicts a white family of four merrily lunching under an umbrella on a red checked blanket while 15 starving Africans – including several children with distended bellies – look on.

A $75,000 purchase – a white bust with a bleeding bullet hole in the forehead – was a particular favorite of Jolie’s. “She went nuts for that one,” an onlooker told the mag. “She told [her baby daddy], ‘I must have that one.'”

For another cool $75,000, she picked up a portrait of a man hit in the head with a custard pie.’
