Bouvard was married in 1940 and his daughter Colette was born in 1941. Colette Bouvard was to become a well known artist of Venetian scenes in the family tradition.
In the late 1940’s he signed contracts with Paul Claux and Andre Larde to sell his work. The Gallery Clair and Mr Madsen also purchased his work for their galleries. His father, in 1954, introduces Georges to the Whitgift Galleries and Morscio to also sell his work.
