Six years later his father died and the family returned to America. James himself entered West Point, but dropped out in his third year when he failed to pass a chemistry exam.

Homer Winslow Biography
Winslow Homer (February 24, 1836 –September 29, 1910) was an American landscape painter and printmaker, best known for his marine subjects. He is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th century America and a preeminent figure in American art. Largely self-taught, Homer began his career working as a commercial illustrator. He subsequently took up oil painting and produced major studio works characterized by the weight and density he exploited from the medium. He also worked extensively in watercolor, creating a fluid and prolific oeuvre, primarily chronicling his working vacations.

Winslow Homer biography excerpt from Wikipedia.org

Winslow Homer, the son of a Boston hardware merchant, spent his childhood fishing instead of studying art. His only early training was an apprenticeship to a lithographer for whom he drew pretty girls to adorn the covers of popular songs. By 1857, however, he was an illustrator for Harper’s Weekly drawing happy scenes of country life at first and then, during the Civil War, pictures of the loneliness and the pastimes of soldiers far from home.
