Together with wife Maud have an important part in NZ art history.

In1911 George married painter Maud Burge (nee Williams) and thereafter was associated with Frank Brangwyn in Belgium and with Philip Connard in England. Frances Hodgkins had probably met the Burges earlier as one of her sister Isabel ( nee Hodgson ) Field's circle in Wellington. Hodgkins painted in the Burge's garden at St. Tropez in 1931 and was influential in persuading Maud and her husband to take up painting seriously though Mrs Burge had been sending work home for exhibition at the NZ Academy of Fine Arts, Wellington since 1920. Frances Hodgkins was with the Burges again at Majorca in 1932 and at Ibiza where Maud accompanied her on painting expeditions. In c. 1937 Mr and Mrs Burge returned to New Zealand to live, settling at Taupo and later Masterton.
