Answer
Eric,
Brackman is a well-known twentieth century American artist. Not hard to find records of his paintings sold at public auction, though most of his works are nude portraits.  In the last decade, a half-dozen still life pictures such as yours have been sold between $1,000 - $2,000.  I would fathom you might fetch mid-to-high end of this range.  But at auction, one never knows! You might also try contacting the New Jersey Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.  

Congratulations, you have a very nice artwork.

Expertise

American Fine Art Paintings.
Oils, Watercolors, Sketches. Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century. Hudson River School, Pennsylvania Academy, Cape Ann artists, Ash Can, Woodstock, Florida Indian River, American Impressionists, etc. I can provide some background about artists and perhaps a rough appraisal or guidance towards obtaining a value. I am acquainted with many of the best American art dealers and auction houses. Original works only, I do not follow the print market. I do NOT field questions about prints.

Important to know
I am not expert in European art. I encourage you to send questions on European artists to other experts on this service. NO PRINTS:I encourage you to seek help on prints elsewhere. Two sites come to mind: www.artoftheprint.com and www.philaprintshop.com

Experience

I have been collecting original American Fine Art for over 20 years. I have curated art shows, and I have served as a dealer, providing appraisals and guidance for the last 8 years.
