Paintings of city portraits, as seen from a virtual birds-eye view. Stately portraits of towns meant to dominate the whole wall. City landscapes form a rich historical Dutch painting tradition.

Viegers is known by her 'Birdseye-views' of Cities; sins1989, Google Earth didn't exist. She was the first Dutch painter who refreshed the old genre of 'The birds-eye view'. She says about her work: "It gives you a sense of context. You are in control of the situation and the city belongs to you". Control of the situation is brought about by the ability to zoom in and out and to ascend and decent the ladder of abstraction, to assess the complete picture without losing details and to grasp the coherence of individual parts".
