Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski (1849 - 1915) was a Polish painter of the Munich school, one of the most popular among Jozef Brandt and Wladyslaw Czachorski.

Wierusz-Kowalski settled in Munich in 1873 just after his studies in Warsaw and Dresden. He studied for a year at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts and then under Josef Brandt. His paintings which received medals at numerous exhibitions where sought-after by collectors and German art dealers. In 1890 he was nominated as an honorary professor of the Munich Academy. He painted generic and historical scenes. After his journey to Africa in 1903 he also undertook oriental themes. His paintings sparsely can be found in collections of Polish museums. His paintings where sold mostly on the German market and turned up in private collections in Germany and the United States.
