Title Basket of Chips, introduction xviii
Description A Basket of Chips not have written his memoirs. Indeed, for most of his life, James Taylor Harwood was exactly as he was described in 1914. Physically, this painter (Utah's strenuous painter, James T. Harwood) is a magnificent type of manhood, strength and endur- ance . . . He has figured out how to utilize every waking moment of time in work, and study and play. I have given some idea of what is his study and work; his play consists in keeping a small farm, a truck garden, and an orchard, and much reading of fiction (which occupies his evening hours). Mr. Harwood is versatile, conscientious and truthful, full of integrity, and noble in his conduct of life. Those qualities show in his work. An artist cannot get away from what he is. His work will tell the tale. The degree-of sympathy, and tenderness of the painter somehow gets into the paint. Mr. Harwood has . . . spent many years in mastering his tools and he has mastered them. He is entering the best era of his art career. Nothing need come between him and his soul expression. In the ripeness of life and art what may not James T. Harwood undertake to its marvelous accomplishment ?I3 13 Horne, Devotees, 55. . . . XV222
