We found this lovely painting. A note on the back reads;
In the 5th month of the year 1944 this was presented to Fa-Chien the older brother of Mei Sheng-Jen. Painted by K’ung Chao-Ming the younger brother of Chu P’ing
Note: Fa Chien is most likely a Buddhist Monk. The two stamps belong to K’ung Chao-Ming and Chu P’ing”
I am wondering if this makes any sense as these kind of notes are notoriously incorrect at times.

孔昭明 ( Fa Chien) may be the Netherland catholic Ordine francescano priest who was active in
Shan Xi province, China in 1930’s. Whose full name is Quintinus Pessers;
Born in 1896, October 4th, died in1983. You might be able to find more information in Netherland.

仁兄(elder brother)is an honorific title just like —my dear friend,法鉴 means professional and tasteful appreciation。竹坪 should be the place where the painter孔昭明is from,and when you called someone 仁兄,Of course you are 弟, just a kind of humility and politeness。
