Abstract: From the motivational point of view, choosing motifs in art education is exceptionally important, as the motif represents the affective part of art education. Emotional response of pupils, both in the perception of artwork and in their own creations, represents an important factor in understanding and responding to art. The article presents the results of a survey which was conducted with the aim of establishing the popularity of different motifs in works of art. The survey was conducted among third-year primary school pupils and investigated which artwork the pupils liked the most and which were the motifs that drew their attention. We further investigated the effect that pupil gender had on these choices. The results have shown that there is a statistically significant gender-related difference in the choice of the motif, while there is less evidence of such a difference with regard to social stratum. The environment of the pupils is therefore irrelevant in the choice of the motif.
