Břetislav Benda (March 28, 1897 in Sepekov – August 19, 1983, Prague) was a significant Czech sculptor, student of Josef Václav Myslbek and member of Mánes Union of Fine Arts from 1923.

Benda's bronzes often focused on the female body, being one of the few sculptors to focus on this almost exclusively. His architectural sculpture includes interior work at the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague, the Komerční banka in Náchod (with the architect Pavel Janák) and a relief for a 1935 savings bank in České Budějovice.
