KELETI, kĕl'ĕ-tĕ, Gustav Friedrich, Hungarian painter: b. Pressburg, 1834; d. 1902. Graduated in law in Vienna he followed teaching for a while and finally studied painting in Munich. He developed a talent for landscape painting into which he threw a touch of Romanticism; but he was never successful as a painter of figures. He helped to establish the Royal Hungarian School of Drawing and the School of Industrial Art of both of which he was head. As a critic he deserves a high place in the history of art in Hungary.
