Eduard Müller (1828-1895) was a German sculptor.

His first occupation was that of a cook in the ducal kitchen at Coburg, and he practised his trade subsequently in Munich and Paris, and thence went to Antwerp, where, on the advice of the sculptor Joseph Geefs, he proceeded to study at the Academy in 1850. Two years afterwards Eduard Müller continued his studies in Brussels, and in 1857 settled permanently in Rome. Among his pupils was Cesare Aureli.

His masterpiece is the group in heroic size, “Prometheus Bound and the Oceanids” (1872–79), National Gallery, Berlin, chiseled out of a single block of marble.
