Summertime at this popular north Norfolk coastal village.

Watercolourist, born in London, son of the art dealer Arthur Ackermann. After initial education in Eastbourne, he studied art at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, Westminster School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools, where he was a distinguished student. Ackermann painted widely in Britain, having a special affection for Sussex and Norfolk, where he settled at Blakeney. Although he worked on a fairly small scale he favoured big brushes; crisp detail, liquid washes, strong colours and careful delineation of architectural subjects are other features of his work. Exhibited extensively at Fine Art Society and Leicester Galleries, where he had one-man shows, also RA, Walker’s Galleries, RI and RBA.
