Anton Robert Leinweber (7 February 1845, Böhmisch Leipa – 21 December 1921, Munich) was a Bohemian German painter and illustrator; known for his Orientalist and Biblical scenes.


His father was a secondary-school teacher. After completing his local education, he went to Prague and Vienna to study engineering, but never completed his courses. While in Vienna, he became a member of the Vienna Academic Fraternity Olympia [de], but was expelled for unknown reasons in 1864.

After this period, he went to the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, to study painting; followed by studies in Prague and at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, where his principal instructor was Julius Hübner.

He spent many years in North Africa; primarily Tunisia. Together with Philipp Grot Johann and Hermann Vogel, he created illustrations for Grimm's Fairy Tales. He also produced illustrations for a deluxe edition of the Bible.
