Bird painting ID mystery

Hello,

I'd be enormously grateful for any assistance identifying the smaller bird in this painting. I'm afraid I don't know anything about it other than that the painter was Japanese who travelled extensively in the Far East and Australasia.

Regards,
Clive

The only thing I can come up with that is even close, is a female Black-naped Monarch?

No contrast between blue head and brown back though?

Agree not perfect match - but the facial pattern and black bib closer than I'd consider for a Black-naped. Off-white, reddish underside also better fit.

Might the Rufous-vented Niltava be a candidate?

Can anyone ID the cockatoo? - that might be a useful clue if one can assume both birds illustrated on the one page were from the same location.

I'm inclined to narrowed it down to these two..

Rufous-vented Niltava and the Spectacled Monarch (Moluccan)
