chromolithograph (Scope note)

This term has no precise application. It is often confined to a variety of colour lithograph using multiple plates which are stippled to achieve the effect of continuous rather than flat tone. It is often also used for any lithograph printed in more than a single colour. For lithographs printed using tint stones (and no additional printed colour), only Technique 'lithograph' is entered, and 'tint' or 'tinted' can be searched for in the Description.
