'The Return' was among the top favourite paintings chosen by children, especially the boys, who visited the 'Pictures for Schools' exhibition in 1954.
One boy commented (presumably when the picture arrived at the school that bought it), "We recently had delivered to the School a number of original paintings by professional artists. My favourite one is called 'The Return', and it was painted by a fellow called Richard Eurich. I think he has worked tremendously hard for he has filled in every possible detail."
