Sophia, Bulgaria 1917 – Israel, 1976

Nahum Gilboa studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Sofia and at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris. World War II began, the artist and his wife boarded a broken down fishing vessel and sailed to Israel as illegal immigrants in 1937. Gilboa became part of the Kibbutz movement but continued his art studies through trips to France and Italy. Gilboa belongs to the school of Lyric Realism (or Fantastic Realism). He often painted Israeli landscapes and Israeli characters that represent the beauty and spirituality of Israel as he saw it.
