German term or phrase: Graumalerei
no, has nothing to do with Schwarzmalerei i.e. a negative attitude. This happens to be an actual articist undertaking or technique but although there are a number of google hits in German, I still have not find a satisfactory translation.
Perhaps we have some specialists out there? TIA.

agree  BrigitteHilgner: according to some of my dictionaries, too. "Grisaille" is actually also used in German.
