A native of Philadelphia, Charles Grafly has been called the "foremost American sculptor of male portrait busts." (Reynolds, 146). It has also been written that "Most important of all, . . .he sought to find the true person within, which was even more elusive." (Reynolds, 178).

Grafly also did life-size figures including ones for the Philadelphia "Smith Monument", a tribute to Civil War soldiers.  However, early in his career, he focused on idealistic and allegorical subjects.& (showing 500 of 2137 characters).
