|Location||National Gallery of Art, Washington|
The bust of Monsignor Francesco Barberini is a marble sculpture by the Italian artist Gianlorenzo Bernini. It was executed in 1623. It was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII, who was nephew of Francesco Barberini . Francesco had actually died in 1600 so Bernini created the bust from existing painted portraits.
