In this field, you will find references to names of groups or to the artists that made/make up groups. You may also come across references to other artists if there was/is question of collaboration without a joint name. This is the case, for instance, with artists who rendered parts of works by other artists (such as with P.P Rubens and J. Brueghel I).
In 1643 Van der Schoor painted a figure in a still life by Ambrosius Bosschaert II (Willigen/Meijer 2003, p. 178-179).

Biographical information
Active in
  • Utrecht (stad) 1620 - 1666
    documented in Utrecht between 1620 and 1672, but also in Dordrecht and possibly also Enkhuizen; 1652-1654 very often in the court case in Utrecht of the unfulfilled marriage promise of his bride Elizabeth de Blom, who sees herself being cheated and resigns from the marriage promise before the wedding; the contents of the files describe a violent war of the roses, which ends with the settlement that van der Schoor is granted a severance payment of 640 guilders (Bok 1994). In 1659 he sold his house on Lange Lauwerstraat. Between 1666 and 1672 he was an inmate of the Dolhuis (madhouse) and probably no longer active. His traces are lost after 1672 (Saur 2019).
  • Dordrecht 1651 - 1652
    Around 1651-1652 he possibly stayed in Dordrecht for a few months (Saur 2019).
