If you’ve spent any time studying art history, you know it’s all about food—particularly bread. Still lifes of fruit and freshly baked bread are pervasive. But what if all classic works of art went gluten-free?
That’s where the brilliant French Tumblr Gluten Free Museum comes into play. Its creator, who currently remains anonymous, uses expert digital manipulation skills to remove bread, wheat, beer, cake, and spaghetti from both classic and modern art images. What makes this endeavor so impressive is the skill level involved, which is a form of art in itself. Artists from Caravaggio to Warhol to Matt Groening have pieces on display at the Gluten Free Museum.
Although the project is in its infancy (it’s only been around for two months), the entire collection is worth your time. You should definitely follow the Gluten Free Museum on Tumblr to view more works of fine art sans gluten.
