The folding screen (Byōbu) is Japanese
Signature reads,
雅治 - Masaharu
Seal like character,
毛  - Mō -Could be the abbreviation for 毛利
Probably Mōri Masaharu 毛利雅治 
Contemporary painter, painting screens too.
Unfortunately, there is only one screen from him on the web, but the quality of pic is too
bad to read the signature and chop.

With regards,

Dear Tony,
Sorry for the not clear description. Your picture is perfect.
I was talking about the quality of reference picture I found on the web.
With regards,
