Anat Gilboa is an art historian specializing in early-modern European art, Jewish and Israeli visual culture and film. Dr. Gilboa’s research, academic courses and talks reflect a focus on a cross-disciplinary analysis of visual culture, history, politics, religion, gender and literature.


She has published an exhibition catalogue entitled My Heart is in the East, and I am in the Farthest West (University of Nebraska, 2014), a monograph entitled Images of the Feminine in Rembrandt’s Work (Eburon Academic Publishers, distributed by the University of Chicago Press, 2003) as well as book chapters and articles in American and European journals.


Gilboa’s research and courses examine the core themes that define modern Israeli identity and its complex representation in Israeli visual language. She is currently working on a study entitled Visual Zionism: Helmar Lerksi’s Verwandlungen durch Licht.
