I would love to help. Taro Okamoto (b.1911) is a listed Japanese artist that does both sculpture and painting and I have access to a database of his sold work.
I will need a photo of the piece (no flash, please) and a picture of the signature. One of the back of the piece will also help. You can do this by using the paper clip icon or ADD FILES button. These features work best on a desktop computer.
