Summary/Abstract: Tygodnik Ilustrowany (1859–1939) brought a positivistic, organic concept of a modernpopular illustrated magazine to the seventh decade of the 19th century. The editors declaredneutrality and independence, which enabled the integration of readers around the achievementsof Polish culture. The more recent development of popular culture research allows us to describethis project more clearly. The change in the meaning of the term ‘biedermeier’ allows to seethe presence of Biedermeier in Tygodnik Ilustrowany and the practice of allegory as a languageof communication with readers. In this light, Tygodnik Ilustrowany is a good example of theinterpenetration of Positivism and Biedermeier.
