Abstract

Aelbcrt van der Schoor was born in or before 1603 in Utrecht. He was the oldest son of Laurens Lambertsz. van der Schoor, a gunsmith from 's-Hertogenbosch and his wife Bertgen Jans. The names of Van der Schoor's teachers are not known. Between 1621 and 1641 his name did not occur in any Utrecht documents. In 1652 the banns were posted for his marriage to Elisabeth Jacobs de Blom of Dordrecht. The wedding did not take place because the bride, afraid that the painter was only interested in her money, changed her mind. Van der Schoor sued for breach of promise, taking the case through all the courts. In 1654 the Supreme Court of Holland and Zeeland awarded him financial compensation in lieu of claims. Van der Schoor's last dated work was done in 1662. Shortly afterwards he was committed to the Utrecht house of correction and in 1666 was transferred to the asylum, where he was cared for at the city's expense. The last payment was recorded in September 1672. Van der Schoor must have died after that, but neither the place nor the date of his death is known.
