Summary/Abstract: The given article highlights the process and the interpretation trends of the plastic approach in the Moldovan figurative paintings in the 60s of the 20th century. There was an increased interest to represent the national character of the figurative painting through a specific modern interpretation during that period. In the early 1960s, the plastic technique tends to sharpen and designate the shapes placed in large pictures with a monumental and decorative appearance. The plastic modeling is inspired by folk art with the textural-coloristic flavor of traditional craftsmanship. In the late 60s, the plastic formula of the Moldovan figurative painting implements new structural and constructive concepts, which tend towards a superficiality of the decorative shapes, being concerned with the structural and textural combinations and associations.A great interest for the representation of the ethnographic character of figurative images through a specific epic-ballad vision has been noticed during this period. These intentions favor the appearance of new plastic formulations provided with profound metaphoric and symbolic reflections, which shape the plastic image in a concise and representative manner.
