Norbert Grund (December 4, 1717 - July 17, 1767) was a Bohemian painter of the Rococo style.

Grund was born in Prague. He was trained by his father who worked as a court painter in Kolovrat. Grund won in 1738 the first painting experience. Then traveled to Vienna and Venice. In 1753 he joined the painters' guild of Malá Strana. His works were influenced by concern for the welfare of his extended family. Therefore, he typically painted smaller formats and more marketable subjects. The basis of his works were small cabinet pictures, often genre works, but also landscapes and biblical themed works.[1]
