John Hogan (October 14, 1800 – 1858) was one of Ireland's greatest sculptors.

Hogan was born on October 14, 1800 in Tallow, Co. Waterford, spent his youth in the city of Cork, Ireland and, in 1812, was placed as clerk to an attorney. Disliking this occupation, he chose to be apprenticed to the architect Sir Thomas Deane, where his talents for drawing and carving were developed. He was sent to Rome where he resided and cultivated his skills for many years.

Hogan's best known work and masterpiece are the three versions of the statue of The Redeemer in Death or The Dead Christ. Created in flawless Carrara marble, the first version (1829) is located in St. Therese's Church, Dublin, Ireland, the second (1833) in St. Finbarr's (South) Church, Cork, Ireland and the third and final version (1854) is located in the Basilica of St. John The Baptist, Newfoundland. Other works by Hogan include the Sleeping Shepherd and The Drunken Faun.
