Jean Augustin Daiwaille (6 August 1786 – 11 April 1850) was a Dutch portrait painter.


Daiwaille was born at Cologne, and went when young to Amsterdam where he studied under A. De Lelie, and was director of the Academy from 1820 to 1826. After that time he resided at Rotterdam, where he was very successful in painting portraits, and where he died in 1850. There is by him one etching, which is scarce.[1]

His daughter Elise Thérèse married one of his pupils, the painter Barend Cornelis Koekkoek. His son Alexander Joseph Daiwaille also became a painter.
