oil on panel. inscribed by the artist. also inscribed is "to Rocky Dagostino" this was gifted to me in 2004, when my boss got a divorce. I'm not sure the year the painting was done.


This used to hang in Lionel Richie's house in Beverly Hills. I worked for him. He and his wife gave this to me when they split and she moved out.

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a painting by William Joseph VERDULT (1939), titled "Barabus" ( possibly Barabbas), referring to the bible / the movie from 1961 featuring Anthony Quinn, with a dedication to Rocky Dagestino, in a gilt gesso frame. The dutch / american artist William Verdult is known for his diversive style, ranging from classic portrait to pop art. A number of astronomically high pre-auction estimates have been recorded. The estimate is based on items actually sold at auction. A true admirer of Lionel Richie might be willing to pay much more than the high estimate.
