Gluten-Free Art Museum Lets You Enjoy Famous Artworks Without Gluten

In one of the weirdest Internet art projects we’ve ever seen, French graphic artist Arthur Coulet has created a Tumblr called the Gluten-Free Art Museum that removes everything containing gluten from famous classical paintings. Some of the changes made to these famous paintings are subtle, while others are huge, but they all share one common vision – a gluten-free world.

Gluten is a protein that forms when proteins in wheat and other grains are mixed with water while being processed. Most of us are fine with it. Celiac disease, however, makes gluten react with and damage the small intestines. Though only about 1% of the population has gluten, there has been a recent movement suggesting that gluten causes many more issues and that avoiding it can help treat or even cure a wide range of diseases. Though most of these people don’t actually need to avoid gluten, the growing popularity of gluten-free food has caused an explosion in food choices for those actually affected by Celiac disease.

Scroll down below and check these safe-to-eat classical artworks for yourself!

Yeah, looks more like a critique to the "gluten free" movement. The modified pictures look like people were so poor they had nothing to eat....

This is a statement on how far people have taken this gluten fad. Without the plants that contain gluten humans may have never evolved to the point we are at now. A point where a true few have an actual condition and others are just riding a fad. I think it's insulting to those who actually have an adverse reaction to gluten.
