[ the last word ]
this time, we shed some light on a shadowy subject...
A painting technique employed by Italian Renaissance painters such as Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael, 'chiaroscuro' (kyah'ro-skoo'ro) literally means 'light and shadow'. The technique was used to achieve the illusion of depth and dimension in a painting through the use of light and dark areas.
