Ben Viegers was initially strongly influenced by the Hague School as a painter. Gradually, however, his gray tones made way for a Mediterranean colorite and clear light. This was further enhanced by a short, impressionistic touch, which together with sizzling colors such as cobalt blue, orange and sea green would become his trademark. Like so many contemporaries, Viegers regularly painted in the Veluwe. He also lived for a long time in Nunspeet, where the landscape and the farming population were a constant source of inspiration for him.
