In 1938 he returned to Denmark and began making commercials for a publishing company called Gutenberghus (Egmont), which also produced magazines. These included “Hjemmet” (The Home), a popular lifestyle magazine that was circulated throughout Scandinavia and is still in print. This  watercolour is a product of the Hjemmet-Myllerier period. Myller was a highly accomplished and technically adept artist and his work is steeped in the style of the era in which it was created.
