Ljerka Dulibić (born in 1972, Zagreb, Croatia) is Senior Research Associate and Curator of Italian Paintings at the Strossmayer Gallery of Old Masters of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. She studied Comparative Literature and History of Art at the Zagreb University, where she also obtained her PhD in History of Art (2007, with a doctoral dissertation on the Tuscan 15th century paintings in the Strossmayer Gallery).

Since 2008 she has been teaching courses on art history and iconography at the Catholic Faculty of Theology, Zagreb University. An active participant in a number of international study-courses, academic programs and conferences, she has received several grants and fellowships, such as the Kate de Rotschield Fellowship, the Royal Collection Studies, the Attingham Trust for the study of historic houses and collections (2008), the CAA Getty International Grant (2015, and Alumni Grant 2017), and the Craig Hugh Smyth Fellowship at Villa I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies (2015).

Dulibić is Principal Investigator in the transnational collaborative research project Transfer of Cultural Objects in the Alpe Adria Region in the 20th Century (TransCultAA, www.transcultaa.eu, 2016–2019), carried out in the framework of the research programme HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and inovation programme. Her main research interests include 14th– to 18th–century Italian paintings, history of art collecting and museum collections, provenance research, and history of the European art market in the 19th and 20th century.

As Museum Fellow at the Bibliotheca Hertziana she is conducting a research on the acquisitions made for the Strossmayer Gallery in Zagreb at the art market in Rome in the late 19th and during the 20th century.
