Oppler is considered as one of the painters of the world of dance. The work of contrasts of very marked values is the most perfect example of this. The artist succeeds in transcribing the whirlwind effect caused by the pair of dancers in the foreground.

Ernst Oppler studied painting in Munich (Bavaria) where he lives, as well as in London and Sluis (the Netherlands). He also stays in Paris.

He is a member of the International Society of Painters, Sculptors and Engravers of London and of the Secession of Berlin, until 1912.

He is nicknamed der Tanzmaler (the painter of dance).
