I think I've covered that turf pretty well with my recent additions. If someone thinks this is better broken out to multiple article, I have no strong objection, though I think there should be at least an overview here that goes seriously into costumbrismo literario (which, after my recent edits, constitutes the bulk of this article). - Jmabel | Talk 06:17, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
In Mexico, the phrase "Si Franz Kafka fuera mexicano, sería costumbrista" (If Franz Kafka were Mexican, he would be a Costumbrista writer) is commonly used in newspapers, blogs, and online forums to tell how hopeless and absurd the situation in the country is. (Aquella, Daniel (2006-11-22). "México kafkiano y costumbrista". Daquella manera:Paseo personal por inquietudes culturales, sociales y lo que tengamos a bien obrar.)
Removed because the citation (which did not include a URL) appears to be just from a personal web site: http://www.daquellamanera.org/?q=node/144. If that is a common saying in Mexico, it should be citable from something more reliable. - Jmabel | Talk 03:06, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Costumbrismo in the visual arts in the Americas
Does anyone have a good source on costumbrismo in the visual arts in the Americas? Or on any recent work that is properly costumbrismo, rather than just using the word in the sense of "folklore" or "traditional heritage" (as in museums and festivals)? I did a major expansion of the article, but in those two areas I'm lacking good sources. - Jmabel | Talk 06:29, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Here is one book that discusses costumbrismo in Ecuador. Calliopejen1 (talk) 19:40, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I could also imagine, if we can find a good citable source, discussing the evolution from individual cuadros and articles to collections in book form, novels and plays, and then the merging into the realist novel. - Jmabel | Talk 07:16, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
