FRASER, Charles, artist, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 20 August 1782" died there, 5 October 1860. In his youth he made sketches of the scenery about Charleston. He studied law, and three years later began the study of art, but was discouraged and resumed his legal studies. He was admitted to the bar in 1807, and retired from practice in 1818 with sufficient competency to continue art. He devoted much attention to miniature painting, in which he was successful. In 1825 he painted a portrait of Lafayette, and subsequently a great number of citizens of South Carolina. He produced many landscape and genre pictures. In 1857 his works were exhibited in Charleston. For short time he resided in Boston. He contributed to various periodicals, published addresses, and "Renaissances of Charleston."
