Chauncey Bradley Ives (1810-1894) was a Neo-Classical sculptor, who is best known for his marble works of Jonathan Trumbull and Roger Sherman. The statues now reside at the National Statuary Hall Collection.

Ives was just 16 when he became an apprentice to Rodolphus Northrop in nearby New Haven. At the time, Ives was studying with a known wood carver in the area, named Hezekiah Augur, who was a pioneering American marble carver.

Shortly after Ives turned to marble carving and began carving portraits, first in Boston, Massachusetts and then in New York City.

For the sake of his health, Chauncey Bradley Ives moved to Rome, where he remained till his death in 1894.
