Bernhard Afinger (6 May 1813, Nuremberg – 25 December 1882, Berlin) was a German sculptor who studied the works of old German sculptures. He was for a time a silversmith, and in 1840 began instruction under Christian Daniel Rauch at Berlin. In portrait medallions and works of a religious character he was particularly successful. There is an Arndt memorial by him at Bonn, a university memorial at Greifswald, and a statue of Newton in the National Museum, Pesth.
