chromolithographie en pointillée

stones hand stippling, the process of applying a series of intermingled dots to the image on the stone to produce variant degrees of shading.
The lithographers used multiple stones fot the color rendering and added tonality in a pointillist fashion.
The french uses "chromolithographie" for the idea of "polychromic printing" and "en pointillé" for the idea of "stipple-drawn".
