Alfred Wolmark (1877, Warsaw - 6 January 1961, London) was a painter and decorative artist. He was a pioneer of the New Movement in Art.

Wolmark was born into a Jewish family in Warsaw. He emigrated to London and became a British citizen in 1894.


He studied at the Royal Academy Schools, 1895-8 (1st Silver Medallist for Drawing).


Returning briefly to Poland in 1903, he painted works based on Jewish historical subjects. In 1911, under the influence of modern French painting, he executed a series of studies of Breton fisherfolk and harbour life, 1911. He worked in the areas of interior decoration, the theatre, and stained glass, 1911-15. He made a stained glass window for St. Mary's Church in Slough in 1915. He painted a series of cityscapes in New York city, 1919-20. He held many exhibitions in London, New York, and Paris, including portrait drawings at the Lefèvre Galleries, 1928. A retrospective of his work was held at Ferens Art Gallery, Kingston upon Hull in 1975.
