Suitable for those with celiac disease, the visually contracted kind, this Gluten-Free Museum Tumblr page features classical paintings with the glutenous food products removed. Created by French artist Arthur Coulet, the images take away bread, wheat fields and baked goods as a commentary on society's current movement away from gluten.

The classical paintings used are ones by such artists as Edouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh and Jean-Francois Millet. It's interesting how the Gluten-Free Museum shows how different the past and history-based art would be if gluten was never incorporated into our food and daily lives.

Removing the iconic pitchfork used for wheat farming, the altered Grant Wood 'American Gothic' painting is changed completely. Equally as telling is the altered Pieter Brueghel image of wheat farmers working in a field that changes to a man relaxing, jobless, in the grass.
