What the Futurists accused other artists of: adherence to and privileging of outmoded principles.
"Passatists, passatists, passatists! All artifice and outmoded pointillism! You know, pointillism – one splotch next to another splotch, little dots of pure color that when you squint your eyes blend into some in-between color that’s much more colorful and brighter than what you’d get if you tried to mix that particular hue on the palette." – from Slavko Grum's play, An Event in the Town of Goga (1928).
