His brother Philipp (Filip) Maximilian Opiz was an eminent forester and botanist. Georg Emanuel travelled extensively throughout Europe and finally settled in Leipzig in 1820. He was a skilled miniaturist, watercolourist and engraver and in his early years concentrated his talents on the lucrative practie of portraiture.
