Spanish term or phrase:pintura plana
PINTURA PLANA: Los primeros artistas que pintaron de forma plana fueron Cézanne y Gauguin, aunque a lo largo del siglo XX (Fauvismo, Expresionismo, Cubismo, etc.) fue consolidándose el valor del trazo plano, que culminó en el Pop Art. Para pintar de forma plana, conviene elegir bien los materiales.

Explanation: "Contact with other cultures influenced many artists, especially the flat perspectives of Japanese painting and the tribal arts of Africa. ...Gaughin and other painters used the traditional life of Brittany, in northern France, to create exotic landscapes. In this picture, women are seeing a vision after hearing a sermon. Notice the flat perspective. " http://www.lisahistory.net/hist104/pw/lectures/natl/5.htm
"Even great artists have down times, and not everything in the show measures up to great works that also include an introspective self-portrait owned by the Kimbell, a Breton landscape that hints at the flat perspective of the Tahitian paintings and Interior, Rue Carcel, a moody painting of the artist's apartment following the breakup of his marriage, with an empty chair at the table and figures of father and son couched in shadows." http://www.wfaa.com/sharedcontent/dws/ent/stories/DN-gauguin...
