    Van der Schuer was in the service of Christina of Sweden. He resided in the Discesa di San Giuseppe in 1661 and 1662 where he shared lodgings with the engraver Cornelis Bloemaert (Hoogewerff 1942, p. 250-251; Bartoni 2012, p. 361). Bertolotti (Bertolotti 1880, p. 153 ff) and Hoogewerff (Hoogewerff 1952, p. 119) erroneously placed a trial against the Dutch painter in 1665, which actually took place in 1661 (Bartoni 2012, p. 528). He was accused of having recited a satirical poem against French painters on Piazza di Spagna and spent several days in jail. It is unclear whether Van der Schuer was still in Rome between 1663 (no longer recorded as living in the Discesa di San Giuseppe) and the spring of 1665.
