German to English translations [PRO]
Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting
German term or phrase: Theaterlineal
"Trotz Computerisierung: die Maler und Kunstmaler des Art Departments haben noch lange nicht ausgedient. Im Gegenteil: der Computer ist wie der Langstielpinsel oder das Theaterlineal wichtiges Werkzeug der Farbkünstler."

Any help much appreciated!
