Gerard left for Italy in 1627 or 1628. He joined the Bentvueghels with the nickname Stijgbeugel. In Italy he was a pupil of fellow Bentvueghel Jean Ducamps, with whom he lived from 1629 to 1631 in Rome on the Via Margutta. The last evidence of his presence there was in July 1631. The next year, Van Kuijl had settled again in Gorinchem, as in 1632 he became a member of the Broederschap der Romeinen binnen Gorinchem ("Brotherhood of Romans in Gorinchem'") In 1641 he lived in Utrecht, but in or before 1648 he returned to his hometown, where he died at the age of 69.
