hm. I'm afraid you are never going to get a satisfactory answer to your question. this is a recent Chinese picture that is pretending (not well) to be a painting by the famous artist Zhang Daqian. The date seems quite oddly written, I can't figure out what its first character is intended to be, but otherwise it was purportedly painted in the winter. That's not really important though because the handwriting and seal are also clearly not Zhang's.
In style it roughly follows Song mountain landscapes as interpreted by Yuan and later painters. I was looking for but haven't found a landscape painting roughly similar to the composition of yours but I don't see it online. It is a painting by Zhang that closely copies a Yuan painting (by Wang Yuan? I forget). There is an article in Judith Smith, ed. "Issues in Authenticity in Chinese Painting" that discusses Zhang's copy of the original. Zhang's version actually looks rather similar to the basic composition of your picture, but in all other ways they are quite different
