This information is on the back of a painting I purchased recently. Could someone kindly aid me with a translation?
Oh yes, it's the same artist. Thanks so much for your help. It appears Mr. Wakita has won many awards and has some important status in the Japanese art world. I wonder if he has passed away. I cannot find any date.The name of the work is Venezia (Venice).
The artist's name is Wakita Kikuo (脇田 喜久男; the family name is Wakita).
The artist was born in Osaka in 1924.
The artist was a member of both the Japan Artists Association (日本美術家連盟) and a society called Nigenkai (二元会).
Does your painting look similar to the one here?
脇田喜久男「イタリア・ベネチア」Ｆ４号油彩 ... - ヤフオク!
If so, you may want to save a copy of that page, as there is more information there.
