The commissioning of likenesses was a Winslow family tradition; Isaac’s father, Edward Winslow, a distinguished Boston silversmith, had earlier sat for John Smibert, as had his older brother, Joshua. After graduating from Harvard in 1727, Isaac apprenticed in the counting room of merchant James Bowdoin, another patronof Feke, before entering the shipbuilding and import/export business with his brother. The MFA owns three portraits of Isaac, painted by the leading colonial artists of his day: Feke, Joseph Blackburn , and Copley .
