|German term or phrase: Nachzeichnung|
from the title of a drawing (or painting or etching, etc., I'm not sure) There is no further context, "Nachzeichnung" appears after the title and date. Would this simply mean "reproduction" or is there a more specific term? thanks!
|Yes, I think it means reproduction|
As Alexander says, it can mean simply that the drawing has been copied from another source. In view of your context, particularly that title and date are given, followed by "Nachzeichnung" I assume it is a copy of an artwork, and to be referred to as a "reproduction".

|Thanks everyone. This seems like a difficult one, I think reproduction might be safest for the time being.|
