Georg Pezold (born May 5, 1865 in Mittweida , † January 27, 1943 in Munich ) was a German sculptor .


Pezold began studying at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Munich in 1884 , which he continued at the Academy of Fine Arts from 1887 and graduated in 1892. Pezold spent his entire life as an artist in Munich's Bogenhausen district . From 1894 he shared a studio with the sculptor and musician Heinrich Düll at Möhlstraße 31 . In 1896, after a competition had not produced a first winner, Pezold and Düll, together with Max Heilmaier, received the order for a peace memorial above the Prince Regent Terrace, which they realized by 1899 and which is known today as the Angel of Peace. Together they made, among other things, partially gilded figures for the interior of the Grand Ducal Court Theater in Weimar.

During the years of the World War , Pezold sometimes designed jewelry to bridge times of lack of orders. Like Düll, he played the recorder and performed with the Bogenhauser artist band , which he co-founded, as an early representative of the historical performance practice of old masters.

His first marriage to Magdalena Sporrer in 1902 resulted in a daughter and a son. After the death of his wife, he married Katharina Schambeck in 1931; from this marriage comes another son.
