Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting / Academic paper on Italian Art History
German term or phrase: Strichzelle
This is from an academic paper on the Italian art historian Vasari's method of collecting drawings and unifying them. The context for this term is:

Mit der gleichen Logik and Konsequenz, die wir andernorts sowohl für den graphischen Aufbau, die Strichzelle, als auch für die große kompositionelle Formgebung der Florentiner Zeichnung hervorhoben, trat Vasari bei der Ordnung seiner Sammlung ständig neu in die Auseinandersetzung mit dem einmal festgelegten Format der Blätter des "Libro" ein.

Can't find out what a Strichzelle is, so if anyone can help, I would be grateful.

(regional style of) drawing structure/graphic composition


Explanation:
Vasari observed that a particular style of drawing was taught within different art academies, i.e. different regions of Italy. He collected and grouped those styles into "Strichzellen", "Strichbilder" or "Strichgruppen".
