Manuel Acevedo (or Acebedo), who was born at Madrid in 1744, was a disciple of Jose Lopez, but by diligently copying the works of the best painters lie soon surpassed his master. He painted historical and religious subjects, and was much employed in Madrid. Bermudez mentions a 'John the Baptist' and a 'St. Francis' by him in the chapel of the hospital of La Latina at Madrid. He died in 1800.
