The Brushstroke is an artist's "signature."
The best brush stroke is the one unique to each artist.

Excellent Brushstroke Resource

An excellent brush stroke resource is The Google Art Project. Here you can study brushstrokes of works from collections around the world. There are 184 collections and counting. That is over 36,000 artworks from thousands of artists.  Collections from 40 countries are represented.
