Scope note
Color woodblock prints in which two blocks are printed one on top of the other, one being a flat tonal block with limited chromatic range and a line block printed last. Early scholars distinguished two-block from multi-block prints by calling them "camaïeu," that is, the ‘monochrome method,’ distinguishing them from "chiaroscuro woodblocks," though current usage does not make this distinction.
