  • Sint-Petersburg (Rusland) 1834 - 1850
    Fedotov was an officer inthe Imperial Guards: in his spare time he painted portraits of fellow officers and militairy scenes and even became a regiment painter; changed in 1846 from watercolour to oil paint
  • Moskou 1850 - 1852
    Fedotov had connections with some of the members of the Petrashevsky social-democratic group who went on trial in 1849. This created some problems for him with the official censors. Sharing the fate of the many democratic-minded intelligentsia, Fedotov was affected by the restrictive political climate. In the spring of 1852, he started to exhibit significant psychological problems; there was also an unhappy love affair that contributed to his troubles. He started to spend money wildly, and offered to marry numerous women in Moscow at the same time. Eventually, his strange behaviour led to his arrest by police, after which he was put in a mental hospital. The illness progressed rapidly. The treatment was not very helpful—it included brutal corporal punishment. Some of his friends visited, and left some notes. He died in a mental clinic at the end of 1852.
