Casimir van den Daele or Casimir Daele was a genre and historical painter who was born in Deinze, Belgium in 1818. In 1831, he moved to Antwerp before moving to Ghent to study at the Academy of Arts. From 1852, he was living and working in Bruges where he continued to paint genre and interior scenes. He died in Meorbeke near Ghent in 1880.

Van den Daele flourished during the Biedermeier period, a time that saw the growth of the middle class in central Europe which stimulated an interest in the arts. He became famous for his intimate scenes of finely dressed people engaged in an activity often set within grand, highly detailed interiors. His meticulous observation of fabric and texture give a richness to his paintings and the expressions given to his subjects arouse a keen interest in the viewer.

His works can be found in private and public collections including the Groeninge Museum in Bruges, the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels.

The painting is housed in a new English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
