Born on 13th February 1876 at Blackheath, he was the son of art dealer Arthur Ackermann. Educated in Eastbourne at the New College, Ackermann went on to study art at the Heatherley's School of Fine Art, Westminster School of Art and later at the Royal Academy Schools.

Ackermann was a watercolourist whose style was for crisp detail and liquid washes although he favoured large brushes. He exhibited extensively at the R.A., R.I., R.B.A., Walker's Galleries and held one-man shows at the Leicester Galleries and Fine Art Society.

Elected a member of the R.I. in 1912, his painting took him all over Britain. However, he had a special affection for Sussex and Norfolk and when he moved to Blakeney, the land and townscapes of this county became the subject of his work - as exemplified in this example.
