Born in Paris, Texas, Gerard "Jerry" Bywaters moved to Dallas in 1917. He studied at Southern Methodist University, the Dallas Art Institute, and the Art Students League. Bywaters also painted at the American Impressionist colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut as well as in France and Spain. He helped found the Dallas Artists League and the Lone Star Printmakers, exhibiting in most of the major Texas art exhibitions held before World War II. Bywaters was a leading member of a group of young, innovative Texas Regionalists and Modernists, including Alexandre Hogue, William Lester, and Otis Dozier. Eventually, this group would become known as the Dallas Nine, and make Dallas one of the most dynamic centers of American Regionalism during the 1930s and 1940s. Bywaters was director of the Dallas Museum of Fine Art (now the Dallas Museum of Art) from 1943 to 1964. His long tenure had a huge impact on the Dallas arts community, a legacy that continues today.
