This information is on the back of a painting I purchased recently. Could someone kindly aid me with a translation?

Regards, Marc

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.

Edited.

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.
