A Sound on the Stairs


This is a strange, mysterious painting signed Robert E. Fraser of Georgetown, S.C., 1949. On the back is the title, "A Sound on the Stairs." A likely ancestor of the painter, also named Robert E. Fraser, once owned the former Kensington rice plantation north of Georgetown, according to ancestry.com., and the Pen Branch plantation, according to the book Historic Houses of South Carolina. Georgetown is located on a coastal bay north of Charleston and is the third oldest city in South Carolina.
