After the October Revolution the artist taught in the Higher Art and Technical Studios and Institute of Art Culture. Having married the artist Alexander Drevin who influenced her a lot, she returned to figurative painting, especially landscapes. The couple travelled a lot around the USSR and visited, in particular, the Urals, Altai, and Armenia. Alexander Drevin and Nadezhda Udaltsova were members of of 13 art groups.
 
In 1938 Alexander Drevin was arrested and executed during Stalinist repressions. Nadezhda Udaltsova saved his paintings from confiscation and destruction by passing them off as her own during house-check.
