评论: He joined the revolutionary party in Germay, was wounded, captured and imprisoned during the 1848 uprising. He came to America after being released and worked in NYC as a designer and illustrator for Harper's and Leslie's. In 1860, after having lived in Phila. for several years, he moved to Washington where he opened a portrait and photography studio. Ulke painted many portraits of high government officials and civic leaders, including Lincoln's Cabinet and Pres. Grant. He was the first artist to convert photographs into india ink paintings.
