António Victorino interprets with inescapable realism the interior of the Church of Our Lady of Pópulo, Caldas da Rainha, in this watercolour dated from 1944, where we observe a lateral altar on the transept of a church, highlighting the covering of the walls in tiles and the table of the altar where is the image of Our Lady of Fátima and Saint Anthony; in the small niche the image of Saint Isidore; on top of the arch, the corner of the triptych of the Passion, where it is possible to observe the deposition of Christ with Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea; the beams of light coming down from the window are spectacular.
This theme is recurrent in his contemporary work in watercolours.
