Summary/Abstract: The given article emphasizes the character of the figurative approach in the MSSR painting in the1960s. During this period the painting was dependent on a number of quite severe conceptual and ideological formulations which have initiated some stylistic and plastic changes in the pictorial image. Some new ways of representing the reality are foreseen within these changes, through the typological interpretation of the plastic form of the figurative approach. It also promotes some features typical for the national character, highlighting the moral and spiritual qualities, the traditions and customs in the social environment. The interpretative process focuses on the authentic rendering of the sensitive reality, exceeding the strategy of the previous objective realism in favour of the subjective expression of the author’s vision, expressed through personal artistic manner. Through these requirements, the interpretation of the figurative approach in enhances, contributing to the widening of the informative message of the work. It diversifies the possibilities for the artistic solution of the image through the plastic and factorial means which express significant values that contribute to a wider representation of reality.
