This innovative exhibition explores the descriptive tradition of "costumbrismo" as it developed in South America in the first half of the nineteenth century. The catalogue focuses on the cultural responses opened up by trade and commerce in the nineteenth century, and also traces the broad circulation of costume books, prints, and watercolors within South America, Asia, and Europe.
