I think the picture is Chinese.
Starting (Leisure) seal:
悪八邪 Eight Evils (Buddhist terminology)
雪嶽窮恭 Snowy mountains exhaust all respect
丙寅夏月下澣 Year of Fire-Tiger (..1866,1926,1986)
In the Last Ten Days of Summer Month
碧山畫 Picture of Bishan - Green Mountains -(Signature) Art-name
First seal reads,
Unfortunately, the second seal is too dim, I can`t decipher it. Probably the real name of artist.
On the net I have found a certain Xu Bishan (許碧
山）1850-1912, and in a name dictionary an another painter from the later Qing era
using the Bishan art-name (real name: Xu Zouqing (許佐清）However, your picture looks younger to be painted by the two above mentioned artists.
