A few facts about the life and work of the artist became our time. Came importantly — his painting "Road in the vicinity of St. Petersburg". Unlike many painters of the early twentieth century, among them the famous, happy painted landscapes with great views of Italy, N.D. Ulyanov is their work of a native artist area of their country. It is clear that these artists by mid-century it was the majority that Russian landscape has evolved, that is, in breadth and depth. To the credit of N. D. Ulyanov, perhaps, who had no special education, he completed his work and truthfully, and skillfully. So that over time the picture gets to the Tretyakov gallery. And this is a weighty assessment of the high talent of the artist.
