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 Lié ge and an "Adoration of the Shepherds" for a Catholic church at Berlin, as well as several famous portraits of the Madonna.
