The artist had a special predilection for painting interiors of houses almost always without the human figure, choosing above all to represent, even when dealing with opulent buildings, corners and less noble details which can only be noticed by a prolonged observation, aware of the importance of the effect of framing a piece of space. This framework is as important in painting as it is in cinema, a reference that the painter stressed as fundamental to his work, in particular the North American classics, thrillers, police films and film noir.
Interiors are a major theme of Manuel Amado's work. In these paintings, there is often a work of reconstituting space through light and shadow, defining furniture and objects through luminous reflections. Windows, doors ajar and slits are crucial to recreate an intimacy associated with places of affection.
