MARTINHO ANTÓNIO DE SOUZA - SÉC. XVIII (2ª METADE) Steps of the Passion of Christ fifteen altarpieces with polychrome and gilt terracotta sculptures and objects of various materials white painted wood frames one with broken glass and the other with loose box five signed and dated from Oporto: NO ANO DE 1785 FES MARTº ANTº DE SOUZA. DA SID DO PORTO Dimensões (altura x comprimento x largura) - (cada) 70 x 82 x 15 cm Notes: Provenance: Family of the Viscounts of Moimenta da Beira, Beira Alta region. The present set - "Stations of the Cross" and "Nativity" - is from the date of its production, in 1785, the property of the same family. It was part of it, everything indicates, three more altarpieces, scattered in family inheritance shares during the 19th century. In addition to the aforementioned three altapieces, another nativity scene was also part, similar to the now placed at auction but of a much smaller size, which is currently in the Museum of the Viseu Cathedral, where it entered through, once again, inheritance shares, since it had passed to an heiress who took the habit of a nun.
