abstract

Dmitry Zhilinsky establishes himself as an artist in the first half of the 1960s by creating a series of paintings which differ distinctly, in their form and content, both from the canons of the Socialist Realism and from those of the ‘severe style’. Zhilinsky’s artistic style was unique because he was inspired more than by the classical Russian and Soviet figurative tradition by the Renaissance art. While art critics and art historians often mention a strong influence of the Renaissance art on Zhilinsky, a truly in-depth and systematic study on this subject has not yet been conducted. In this paper, we analyse some of his most significant works in order to identify stylistic and compositional quotes from Renaissance masterpieces in them and to propose new interpretations of their subjects.
