Francesco Busti (1678–1767) was an Italian painter of the late-Baroque and Neoclassical periods.


He was born in Perugia. He was putatively a pupil of Giovanni Battista Gaulli.[1] One of his pupils was Nicola Giuli[2] and Baldassare Orsini, who later became an art historian.[3] He painted an altarpiece of St Vincent Ferrer of the church of San Domenico in Perugia.[4]
