    Default costumbrista

    The sentence:

    creó una escuela propia inglesa más costumbrista y mas crítica, que marcó el estilo nacional inglés

    My attempt:

    He created an English School more of local customs and manners and more critical , that marked the English national style

    The context: I'm talking about Fine Arts

    He created an English school that incorporated English culture and emphasized English style because this was more urgently needed.
