北苑真筆 - A True Picture of Beiyuan*
宣統辛亥正月十四日獲觀於 - Viewed on the January 14th  Xuantong Year of Metal-Pig (1911)
朴孫都護之半畝園 at Banmuyuan (Half-mu large garden) guarded by Pu Sun Dao
鄭孝胥題 - Inscription by Zheng Xiaoxu

Seals are collectors's seals or leisure seals
e.g.
張若麟 - Zhang Ruolin
放情丘壑 - Enjoy onself in nature's embrace
書画禅 - Chan Calligraphies and Pictures

*Beiyuan was the name of royal gardens in the north of the court in Beijing

I can't find any seal that could refer to the painter. The style seems to be Tang dynasty work.
The picture itself is a reproduction.

With regards,
I.Nagy

The painter is not known. The inscription on the short border preceding the painting dates from 1911 and claims falsely that the picture is a genuine work by Dong Yuan. The seals belong to collectors. Additional info at the webpage below and in the MFA catalog "Tales from the Land of Dragons"

With Rat's kind help I could find out the meaning of Beiyuan (北苑 = Northern Garden)
It was quasy the pen-name of Dong Yuan (董源)- because he held the post of Vice Commissioner to the Northern Garden (北苑副使)- the N.G. meant "Imperial Court"
