If hankering over canvas is wrong, we don't wanna be right.

We've waxed cravingly over delectable art many times over, but the hyperrealistic oil paintings of Dutch artist Tjalf Sparnaay leave us with hyperrealistic hunger pangs.

Really, have you ever seen a sexier painting of a sandwich? Those yolks, those crumbs! Swoon.

"Broodje Gezond (Healthy Sandwich)" 2009

Sparnaay seems to have aced the details of eggs in general, judging from the mastery of this depiction of a fried version:

"Gebakken Ei (Fried Egg)" 2009

Ah, the palpable frustration of retrieving ketchup from the bottle!

"Ketchup 2011" 2011

And yes, we'd like fries with that.

"Patat (Fries)" 1999

We're dying to pluck a roast potato off of this piece:

"Draadjesvlees (Stew)" Undated

Now, if you'll excuse us, we're off to lunch. All of this art appreciation has made us hungry.
