Members of the Russian Avant-garde were initially eager to participate in the revolutionary reconstruction of a new socialist paradise. This Utopia was to be painted in bright colours. In their "Decree No. 1 -Makingthe Arts Democratic", Futurists among them such as Mayakovsky declared that the art should abandon the vaults and palaces and that - "Colours should pour through the streets and squares like multi-coloured rainbows, from house to house, and delight and dignify the eyes of passers-by.
