Why have scholars imagined that Vermeer used the camera obscura as an aid to his painting? There is, after all, absolutely no historical evidence to support this idea—the camera leaves no physical trace of its use—but only the visual evidence exhibited by the paintings themselves. Curiously, it may not be coincidental Vermeer's work rediscovered by the French Thoré-Bürge r, who was himself and amateur photographer.
