Olivieri, Domenico

Olivieri, Domenico an Italian painter, was born at Turin in 1679. According to Della Valle, he excelled in painting subjects requiring humorous talent for caricature, and in this has seldom been surpassed. Lanzi says: "In his time the royal collection was enriched at the death of Prince Eugene by the addition of nearly four hundred Flemish pictures; and none profited more than Olivieri from the study of these works. But, although he chiefly painted in what the Italians style Bambocciate, he was yet perfectly competent to execute works in the higher walks of history, as is proved by his Miracle of the Sacrament, in the sacristy of Corpus Domini in his native city." He died in 1755.
