🌙 Zodiac

James McNeill Whistler’s zodiac sign is Cancer. According to astrologers, the sign of Cancer belongs to the element of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them. Being ruled by the Moon, phases of the lunar cycle deepen their internal mysteries and create fleeting emotional patterns that are beyond their control. As children, they don't have enough coping and defensive mechanisms for the outer world, and have to be approached with care and understanding, for that is what they give in return.

🌙 Chinese Zodiac Signs

James McNeill Whistler was born in the Year of the Horse. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Horse love to roam free. They’re energetic, self-reliant, money-wise, and they enjoy traveling, love and intimacy. They’re great at seducing, sharp-witted, impatient and sometimes seen as a drifter. Compatible with Dog or Tiger.

He attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, but was dismissed from the institution as a result of his poor grades and deplorable behavior.

Family Life

He was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, to George Washington Whistler and Anna Matilda McNeill. He lived in Russia (where his father worked as an engineer) for part of his childhood and studied at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts.

Associated With
