German painter; born in Berlin 1790; died at Rome 1854. He studied at Vienna and at Rome, where he especially took Vanucci for his model. Together with his brother Philipp Veit he joined the neo-German school, but distinguished himself by his superior coloring. He painted an altar-piece for the cathedral at Liége and an "Adoration of the Shepherds" for a Catholic church at Berlin, as well as several famous portraits of the Madonna.
