Arthur Lee (May 4, 1881 – 1961) was an American sculptor, born in Trondheim, Norway. His family immigrated to the United States in 1888, settling in St. Paul, Minnesota. He studied at the Art Students League in New York before returning to Europe to study the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, as well as in Rome and London.
He was one of the more conservative artists who exhibited at the Armory Show in 1913 where he displayed eight drawings and sculptures and was one of a dozen sculptors invited to compete in the Pioneer Woman statue competition in 1927. He also taught; among his pupils was Eleanor Platt.
