|KEY WORD : art history / paintings|
|A painting where the original ink lines show through after light pigment is added. The 11c Senzui byoubu 山水屏風 in the Kyoto National Museum (formerly in possession of Kyouougokokuji 教王護国寺, also known as Touji 東寺; Kyoto) is sometimes given as an example of tan-e. However, other documents suggest that tan-e is a technique of shading using gold or silver pigment because of its phonetic relationship to the term *dami-e 濃絵.|
