Harwood Collection." I'3 The money will enable us to return to Europe to live."O I hope to further develop my color etchings, and to exhibit again in the Salon. I should also like to paint some of the color- ful sailboats on Lago di Gardi [Garda), Italy."' Willard, Ruth, June, and James are all doing well in their respective fields. Another chip was born to the Harwood fam- ily, this time to James and Frances. They call him Bob. Once more I set off towards new horizons. I am eager to revisit Paris with my family. Lark, five years old now, a beauti- ful, intelligent child. She should soon be chattering away in French. James Vern is nearly two years old, a sturdy little chip. His brilliant blue eyes denote a keen intelligence. Their mother is still LAE to me, the symbol as fresh and true as ever, still is worked in every painting, "sealed" before I sign it.

Har- wood with the purchase of 70 of his sketches, etchings and paintings for the school's permanent collection. In this group is the quaint shingle he first hung out offering instruction in the painting art." Heaton, Pioneers of Utah Art, 74-75. 20 Now regarded as "the Dean of Utah Artists," Harwood discovered that the Brigham Young University "purchase made it possible for him to return to France where he could study and paint as much as he wanted." Salt Ldke Tribune, 3 October 1937; Heaton, Pioneers of Utah AT), 75. 21 Beginning in 1937, Harwood, his wife, and their two children Lark and James Vern, spent two more years in Europe. "They had a studio in Paris, and once more Harwood did a series of colored plates at the Maccard Studio. During the winters they lived on the Lago di Garda, in Italy, where he painted a number of sailboat pictures, and in Cagnes, Antibes, and Sanary-sur-mer, France."
