All paintings need a gentle, professional cleaning on occasion. Even in the cleanest of household environments, paintings accumulate dust and dirt from interior and exterior sources, including most forms of domestic heating. Cleaning and, if needed, varnishing removes harmful contaminants that can damage the paint over time. Cleanings need not be expensive. Coming Home by Eric Sloane, pictured above, wasn’t cleaned since it was painted in 1945. A thorough and careful cleaning not only protected the painting, it also improved the painting a great deal and cost only $150.00. Coming Home is one of the few Eric Sloane paintings I have ever seen that is dated (Sloane admitted to having a fierce aversion to dating anything), and in this case the date is significant. Coming Home was commissioned by the wife of a World War II combat pilot shortly after V-E Day. Janie asked Sloane to paint a picture of her husband Warren flying home to her in time for Christmas, 1945 (note the holly leaf and berries in the inscription below, which appears at the lower right of the painting).
