We know that it is not the camera used by Vermeer but that is what it was called by its inventor, Anson Kent Cross (1862-1944). The camera is dated September 18, 1934 in a list of 22 of his inventions that Cross published. Cross was a painter and educator who developed systems for the teaching of painting and drawing. He worked from the 1880s until his death in 1944 to promote a series of "systems" and "vision-training aids" in instruction books and at art schools such as the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston and his Anson K. Cross Art School.
