This is a picture of Japanese work of art. It's not a painting. The mountain peak is relief.

It's signed 雲林 which is the Japanese surname Kumobayashi. The meaning is "cloud forest". This can be easily confused with Yunlin county in Taiwan (Yunlin being how it's romanized from Chinese). This is sometimes a Japanese given name, Unrin (pronunciation borrowed into Japanese from Chinese).

The chop/stamp is the same characters in seal script form.

If the characters don't look the same to you, here are about 100 ways these can be written:

Getting info about the artist can be pretty tough. But having the name 雲林 / Kumobayashi, and a lot of Google searching may come up with something. Good luck!
