Painting on wood, made of three boards connected by two longitudinally arranged crossbars.
The main area of the painting represents a young woman, with a pitcher on her head, heading towards a fountain, amidst rural scenery. Beneath it, the inscription reveals the title of the painting ("Margarida vai à fonte", i.e. Margarida goes to the fountain), its author (José G. Neves), date (September 2, 1913), and the whom it is dedicated. The painting therefore is probably a gift, to [Mr.] Augusto Castanheira de Moura, the "Honorable owner" of a Restaurant called "Tabuense".
The title of the painting evokes a homonymous popular Portuguese song from the early 20th century with the following lyrics: "Margarida goes to the fountain / Margarida goes to the fountain / To fill her little pitcher / On the hills lilies grow / Margarida goes to the fountain / Goes to the fountain and returns on her own."
