Intertextuality studies are as one of the significant approaches in literature and art. This term for the first time was proposed by Julia Kristeva 60s and later it was expanded by persons such as Roland Barthes, Gerard Genette & et al. Nowadays we are living in a world which is full of texts and these texts are born in it, grow and finally give their place to other texts but they aren’t disappeared. These texts are knotted to each other with intertextuality rules and they have interaction with each other. They sometimes deny or confirm each other but any way they influence on each other. In fact existence of sign world and existing texts and their effects in creation of each artistic effect are inevitable.

This paper intends to consider the applicable studies of intertextuality in Iranian community art by concentrating on Qajar era painting. And it refers to the role of intertextuality in producing and reading the works by studying the case samples.

The methodology in this research with review of art history and due to the analyses done on the works (sample to sample) will be analytic-descriptive according to the allegorical method.
