Description A New Life together, we are in the Land of Eldorado, which becomes more blessed, more satisfying each year.22 ENVOY: After a brief illness, [dmes Taylor Harwood died on Octo- ber 16, 1940. He finished his last landscape the week before, blocked in another c~nuas, and held his ~lszul weekly class in Ogden. This is the way be would baue chosen to go: be did not want to live to old age without uigorund bedltb.23 Fortzlndtely, an art exhibition, representative of his life's work, wds shown in honor of his eightieth birtbddy, April 8tb. It was held daily from April 14th through April 2Ttb, 1940, tinder 22 "War clouds began to gather in 1939 and the Harwoods decided to return to America with their two small children." Heaton, Pioneers of Utuh Art, 75. "Sailing from [Le} Havre, in October 1939, the family first went to Balboa Island, California. A one-man show of his oils was shown at the Ambassador Hotel Art Gallery, and at the Stendahl Art Galleries, Los Angeles in June 1940 . . . . Harwood . . . returned to his studio and garden in Salt Lake City. Harwood, "National Cyclopedia," 5. "Theirs has been a marriage of great happiness and fulfillment. Two charm- ing children, Lark and Vern James [actually James Vern}, add much to their rich store of joy. Last year again [1939], Mr. Harwood had one of his large colorful landscapes in the Salon [Vineyards of Italy], and his little family was with him in Paris for the occasion. They have returned after the two years abroad and plan to spend the winters in California and the summer seasons at their home in Salt Lake. This miracle of new life is very apparent in all his work, and he is now painting as eagerly and strongly as ever. This spring [1940] he is once more at his Utah home, working again in his loved garden, and continuing with his painting. He plans also to do some teaching with his devoted pupils in Ogden and Salt Lake, and thus help others, as he has done for so many worth- while years, toward the high ideals of art expression in our state." Hmwood Art Exhibition, 7. 23 "Remembered as an `idealist' who emphasized an `essential' drawing foundation and craftsmanship in the development of art students," and so "that the[se] values he stands for may be carried on through the years, the University alumni and friends are working toward the establishment of a Harwood art scholarship at the University to be presented to the outstanding art graduate from the high schools of the state." Olpin, Dictionury, 119; Hurwood Avt Exhibi- tion, 7. "The applicant [for the scholarship3 must work hard to express in his own way high ideals in art, and must have a fine character and high morals." Olpin, Dichonary, 119. 1s7
