Abstract: 20th century artists’ interest and inspiration by children’s art inscribes itself into the frames of broader tendencies appearing at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The very tendencies were connected with a rebellion against culture and art in the shape and direction they go into at that time. They postulated a turn to what is non‑academic, uncontaminated with influences of the Western culture, naïve and primitive. Apart from such tendencies as interest in the art of primitive cultures, works of the sick and those from the social margin, what appeared was interest in children’s works not shaped by the culture and having the ability to perceive things in a clear way of the surrounding world. Also the scientific discoveries at that time with psychoanalysis and theory of evolution at the head influenced theses phenomena. The article presents a psychoanalytic attitude to works, a characteristic of child’s flexible utterance and the analysis of the ways Wasyl Kandyński, Paul Klee and Pablo Picasso were inspired by children’s works. Their works of art inscribed themselves in what is described in the literature as fascination with a “naïve look”. However each of them presented a different way of approaching this topic and was an example of how differently the artists were inspired by the same sources.
