Due to the troubled situation in the border region with France Ulrich grew up first with his grandparents in Weisslingen, later he visited schools in Winterthur and Zurich. At the instigation of his father Johann Jakob Ulrich-Meyer (1769-1840, land clerk of Andelfingen and later publisher in Zurich) Ulrich completed first in Zurich training as a merchant, which he continued in the spring of 1816 in the Parisian bank Paturle, Lepin & Co. [ 1]
Through Paturle, Ulrich wrote in 1822 - initially while working at the bank - in the studio of Jean-Victor Bertin, in which Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot also worked. In 1823 he moved to the studio of the three brothers Leprince, and worked in 1824 together with Théodore Gudin in Dieppe, until he moved in 1825 then own studio in Paris.
In the years 1828-1830 Ulrich traveled Naples, Rome and Sicily, where he made numerous sketches. In 1832 and 1835 he spent some time in England. There he apparently studied the works of John Constable, with whom he had first been confronted in 1824 in the Paris Salon. His early works, with their coloring, low horizons and detailed observation of the cloudy sky, reveal Constable's influence. Another artist, with whose works Ulrich's paintings can be compared, is Eugène Boudin, who exploited the light and water mood in a similar way as Ulrich. From 1824 Johann Jakob Ulrich regularly exhibited in the salon.
Even after he had settled in Zurich towards the end of the 1830s, he frequently travelled, among others to Germany, France, Belgium, Holland and again to England. Already in the 1840s, he trained artists, including Rudolf Koller, and in 1855 he became professor of landscape drawing at the Zurich Polytechnic. Among his students there was Xaver Imfeld.
Ulrich published the panel "Switzerland in Pictures", for which he made many drawings, watercolours and oil studies. Ulrich is considered one of the pioneers of the Swiss open-air landscape painters such as Johann Gottfried Steffan, Koller, Frank Buchser, Otto Frölicher and Adolf Stäbli. His landscapes painted for the Swiss public often have a more traditional style than his drawings from the same period, some of which are reminiscent of William Turner. In the Kunstmuseum Bern, for example, there is the rather conventionally designed "Port of Rotterdam" from 1844, which forms a clear contrast to the "sea storm" of 1849, which the Kunsthaus Zürich owns. From the 1850s on, he combined the conventional subjects demanded by the art market with his sensitive style of painting, which was focused on lighting effects. Examples of paintings from this period include the "Waterfall in the Forest" from 1853, which is located in the Kunsthaus Zürich, or "Mondlicht über Sorrent" from 1858, which hangs in the Kunstmuseum Winterthur.
