Even abroad, Flavitsky planned to write a picture about the ill-fated destiny of the famous adventurer impostor, who deliberately took the name of Princess Tarakanova and marked herself on the Russian throne. The picture shows a stone casemate with a large window for the prison. The painting was a huge success both in Petersburg, Moscow, and abroad, including at the world exhibition in Paris.
There are two copyrighted copies of this painting, one of which is in the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the second - in the Tashkent State Museum of Art.
