Reading of the signature on the 1st picture,
山陰任頤伯年 畫 - Shanyin Ren Yi Bonian Picture
The painter is Ren Yi or Ren Bonian,(1840-1896) famous painter
Shanyin (Shady side of the Mountain) is the name of place in Zhejiang where he was born. He used to write it before his signature.
任伯年 - Ren Bonian
頤印 - Seal of Yi
I could find the same imprints of seals in my ID dictionary
Signature and seal read alike,
喬木 Qiao Mu
Qiao Mu (1920-1896) a Shanghai painter, specialized himself on flowers and birds. In his later years he was a senior professor at the Fine Arts Institute of Shanghai University.
