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?
