As with the 'Daydream' picture, the arms are crucial to the arrangement.

Arms are rarely beautiful and generally covered in paintings (it seems to me) so they are specially interesting when given prominence like this. He's a brave painter.

Its easy to see why he was so popular and still is as a painter. They have an easy on the eye look that was probably very difficult to actually paint.
