Domenico Olivieri, an Italian painter, was born at Turin in 1679. He particularly excelled in painting droll scenes, fairs, and merry-makings, in imitation of the style of Peter van Laer, in which he displayed infinite humour, and a talent for caricature. In the gallery of the court of Turin were two of his best pictures, in one of which he has represented a fair, with an immense assemblage of figures, of quack-doctors, and groups of peasants, sporting or quarrelling. Though chiefly employed in painting what are called Bambocciate, he was not incapable of historical painting, as appears in his picture of The Miracle of the Sacrament, in the sacristy of Corpus Domini, at Turin. He died in 1755. Boni says that he bad a pupil who painted in the same style, and of whom he speaks as N. Graneri of London.
