German term or phrase: Formvokabular
In dieser Entschiedenheit entwickelte sie ein bildreiches Formvokabular mit surrealen Zügen, wie beispielsweise in ihrer grafischen Serie über “Träume” und des “Odysseus”.

formal vocabulary
Explanation:
seems to be common in connection with painting and architecture

"Peebles has created a spartan formal vocabulary derived directly from the Stijl artists but ultimately ..."

"Chagall integrated personal fantasy and narrative elements from Russian folk art into an advanced formal vocabulary indebted to the French artists, as is evident in his The Soldier Drinks (1911–12). "

http://www.guggenheimlasvegas.org/past/exhibition_168_page_6...

from the Tate Galler: "a reduced formal vocabulary of simple, often geometric compositions executed in a characteristically detached manner."
