I see you have had a prev inquiry about "ackerman", but when I tried to use the link yuo provided to them , the link didn't work any longer. The signature is the same, and the style is consistant.
Do you have any other inforamtion about this artist,
first name, area they lived, when he painted?
I am hoping to find out whether I should insure this piece?


Hello Diane,
The artist is California painter Frank Ackerman. I have his biography posted for you below. You can search for his work on the internet (often there are some of his paintings on ebay), to get an idea of value. Usually between $400-1000 for watercolors.

From Los Angeles County Arts website:
Frank Ackerman (1933-1986) was a prominent watercolor artist who attended the Chouinard Art Institute and was President of the National Watercolor Society in the early 1970s. His designs have been exhibited at many galleries and museums including the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and the National Academy of Design, New York. Ackerman joined LA County’s Graphic Arts Department after working as a County architectural draftsman and illustrator. He headed the County Graphics Department between 1973 and 1980 and then became the Chief of Museum Exhibit Services at the Museum of Natural History. Ackerman also traveled to the South Pole as an official Navy artist in the 1960s.

I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,

Fine Art
