Daniel van Heil (1604 in Brussels –1664 in Brussels), was a Flemish Baroque painter.
According to Houbraken, who summarized a two-page poem about his work by Cornelis de Bie, Daniel van Heil was a Flemish painter who specialized in landscapes with winter scenes or burning fires. He was the brother of Jan Baptist van Heil and Leo van Heil, and the father of Theodore van Heil.
According to the RKD, he was a landscape painter active in Brussels, specializing in winter scenes. His other theme of fires, which De Bie mentions in his poem, seems to have been popular, and in particular his theme of Aeneas carrying his father Anchises from the burning city of Troy seems to have been most popular, since more than 5 copies are known today.
