  1. If you are speaking on John Singleton Copley, this statement from a web site might provide a clue:
    <<Copley demonstrated a genius, in both his American and British periods, for rendering surface textures and capturing emotional immediacy.>>

    I'd go with facial epressions. Being able to paint cloth (a surface) does not seem like that big a deal
