    Smith, after Jones. Technical term for 'after'.

    An artist acknowledges an influence by labelling the work 'Smith, after Jones'. What is the technical term for the use of the word 'after' in this context?

    I tried to answer this by going through the dictionary of grammatical terms but couldn't find the answer. I reasoned that a closely related phrase might be Smith following Jones and had a look at terms related to verbs but didn't find anything.

    TIA
