Isidoro Grünhut (1862–1896) was a Jewish Italian painter who lived in Trieste and gave rise to the "civilization of portraits".[1] Among his masterpieces was La Bambola (1891), stored at the Revoltella Museum[2] in Trieste along with other chefs d'oeuvre by Grünhut. Trieste named one of its streets Via Isidoro Grunhut.

Grünhut is related to linguist Ghil'ad Zuckermann.[3]
