comment 冰雪聪明… only for girls?
@deutschZuid ... maybe I should have expressed more clearly. Yes, 聪明 alone can be pronounced as cōng ming, and it is quite often heard; however it's not a must, the National Putonghua Proficiency Test doesn't put it in the "must neutral tone" list, and the 现代汉语词典 fifth edition also marks it as cōng míng (well it is a constant argued issue). In 冰雪聪明, the cōng ming sound is not natural, so at least I don't suggest pronouncing it like that.

@deutschZuid this idiom should pronounce bīng xuě cōng míng. Not cōng ming.

As it is used overwhelmingly for girls, I feel it sounds like a gay if use it to describe a man.

comment Chinese symbols on a Murakami painting?
澗声 is just what @user58955 has explained (maybe it is the subject of the exhibition?). And in 法橋隆, 法橋 is a sort of title, and 隆 is the first name of the artist. You may have already noticed that, Takashi Murakami, 村上隆, 村上(Murakami) is the surname, 隆(Takashi) is the first name.
