Bernard Ouchard was the son of Emile Auguste, born in Mirecourt in 1925. He studied with his father and assisted him in the 1940s. He fought in the French army in WWII and then worked for Vidoudez in Geneva from 1949, making a number of beautiful and highly decorative bows. He remained with Vidoudez until 1971, and devoted his final years to teaching at the Ecole de Lutherie in Mirecourt. He died in 1979 at the age of 53.
