Adolph Alexander Weinman (born in Dec. 11, 1870  and died in Aug. 8, 1952) was an American carver and architectural sculptor, born in Durmersheim, about Karlsruhe, Germany. His son Robert Weinman was also a statue maker.

Weinman come in the United States at the age of 14. At the age of 15, he attended evening classes at Cooper Union and later taken at the Art Students League of New York with carvers Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Philip Martiny. He later helped as an assistant to Charles Niehaus, Olin Warner, and Daniel Chester French. Weinman opened his own studio in 1904. Although Weinman is now best recalled as a medallist, when he once was presented as such he vehemently refused being one and said that he was an architectural sculptor. His most steady-going income was derived from the sale of small bronze breedings of his larger works, such as Descending Night, to begin with empowered for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco, 1915 .
