Any assistance with identifying the artist and/or seal is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Signature,
秀峰 - Shuhō (Japanese)
Xiufeng (Chinese)
     Su Bong (Korean)
Seal,
秀  - Shu - Xiu - Su

One of the most common pseudonyms (Elegant peak). Showing the picture perhaps would help to determine the nationality of painter at least.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Dear Kim,
Thanks for the pictures. Your painting was painted definitively by Japanese artist, which is supported by the depicted scenery (with typical Japanese cottages) workmanship, silken cloth mounting with Japanese pattern etc
I compared the signatures and seals of 8 known painters (active between 1850 and 1945) with
name Shoho, but I didn't find the same.
I also found at least the same number of unidentified works from unknown artists with the same name ( all different signature and seal) on auction sites.
Sorry for failing to fulfil your expectations.

With regards,
I.Nagy

Thank you! I appreciate all of the information provided. Identifying the markings - of a language which I am not fluent - has been on a short list of items I have put off for too long. Now, I have some insight for the next dialogue generated by this painting. Thank you, again.
