Brackman was born in Odessa, Russian Empire (now in Ukraine), and immigrated to the United States in 1908 or 1910. He studied at the National Academy of Design from 1919 to 1921, and the Ferrer School in San Francisco. Starting in 1931, he had a long career teaching at the Art Students League of New York where he was a life member. Brackman painted portraits of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, Charles Lindbergh, and John Foster Dulles, as well as portraits commissioned by the United States Air Force Academy and the State Department.
