Greek translation:σκιαγραφώντας
Explanation:
"Virgin and Child with St Anne" is a Leonardo da Vinci painting, and your text is talking about "tracing" this painting to another painting (by Leonardo). Here the verb "trace" has the meaning of putting the one next to the other, combining the two and comparing. In Greek, you can express this by "παραλληλίζω", or "σκιαγραφώ".
"σκιαγραφώντας τον έναν πίνακα επάνω στον άλλον" (tracing one painting to the other).
