Elaborate towards?

hello all!

I am editing a paper and have come across this sentence, which strikes me as incorrect, but I think living in French for over a decade has stunted my ability to really know if what I am reading in English is grammatically incorrect. Your help and advice is thus appreciated! :

"...there were several other German, French and British critics whose writings elaborated towards a crucial change in the understanding of the relations between word and image."

The 'elaborated towards' just seems wrong to me. Am I right?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hullo Candice. It sounds perfectly okay for something you'd read in an article that had anything to do with art/literary critics.

    Ok! Thanks a lot Ewie! I will leave it as is! I admit the whole article is not my cuppa tea, making the rereading all the more tedious...

    Cheers!
