Johannes Grünwald grew up on Grünwald-an-der-Saale, his father's small estate, in Thuringia before leaving to to stay with his mother's family in France, where his remarkable talent for painting and drawing could be trained better than on the small estate at the edge of the Thuringen Forest.
Johannes became one of the foremost painters of propaganda broadsheets for the Holy Roman Empire during the Thirty Years' War. However, the sight of the atrocities committed throughout the conflict, especially the Sack of Magdeburg, led him to revolt and flee for his life.
