This portrait of a young Russian freemason (hand position, blue bow tie of a "blue" symbolic loge (1 to 3 °)) was made in 1847 in St. Petersburg by German artist Carl Christian Fiedler, who in the second half of 1840s lived in the Russian capital.
Carl Christian Fiedler (1789 Schkeuditz near Dresden - 1851 St. Petersburg) was probably , according to Saur, a pupil of Johann Friedrich August Tischbein and Hans Veit Schnorr von Carolsfeld at the Academy of Leipzig. He is mentioned as living in Leipzig until early 1840s, where he worked as a portraitist and miniaturist.
According to Schidlof he worked in Russia from 1845. Kondakov informs us that in 1845 he was bestowed with the title "outclassed artist" by the St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Fine Arts for the "Portrait of P.P. Utkin". In 1846, his portrait miniatures were shown at the St. Petersburg academical exhibition.
