Help with recognizing handwritten characters

#1
Hello everyone! 
I was wondering if someone is a whiz when it comes to recognizing handwritten characters?
A friend of mine bought a picture in China with some calligraphy (Title or artist's signature maybe?). He was told what it means but forgot it  Tongue

I have only learned Japanese Kanji (RTK1+), and neither me nor my girlfriend (who is japanese) can make sense of this. My girlfriend recognizes the first (upper) handwritten character looks like 林 (also the right side of the upper stamp), for the rest... 

If anyone can help, I'm grateful for all suggestions!

All the best,
Rinre

From left to right, it's 林風瞑, 風瞑, 林風眠 respectively

Wow, that's great, thanks a lot BellatKoohii!
Now when I compare it I can kind of see it (especially the upper left stamp), but without your help as I said, totally clueless  Confused

My friend will certainly also be very happy, it looks like an important artist! 

Again, my heartfelt thanks!  Smile
