Chinese Art Print

Hello :)

I am hoping someone here might be able to help me. My mother purchased this print for me at a garage sale, and I have been trying to find some information on it but it has proven to be difficult. My husband spoke with his friend about it, who is Chinese and was able to get a decent translation on the words on the print, but he didn't know anything more about, and even with the information he gave me I have had no real luck locating any information on this print. I am hoping that someone here might be able to tell me more;

If it helps at all this is what my husbands friend told us;
this is what is on the print: 海陵袁佩芯画于岱庐之南宾
the picture is made by a guy called 袁佩芯
the first two words 海陵 is the place that the guy lived

I have tried sticking this in a translator online, but all I got was this:
Sea mausoleum Yuan Peixin picture Yu Dailu south guest
which hasn't been helpful. I can't find anything on google about Yuan Peixin (if that is even a valid translation of his name, I don't really trust the online translators), even when I search with the chinese characters I can't find anything relating to art. So any help someone in here could provide would be greatly appreciated! I'd like to actually know something about the art on my wall!
