After his death, the portfolio was found in John Ringling’s walk-in closet on top of a bookshelf stacked with other oversized portfolios located in his personal office in Ca’d’Zan. This portfolio contains 12 reproduced photographic plates of decorative mural illustrations on Bristol board. The panels were designed by the Arthur Martin Studio based in Paris, France. Many of Arthur Martin's studio designs were reproduced by wallpaper and textile manufacturers late in the 19th century. This portfolio features six figures each representing the arts, the four seasons, and two decorative paintings for the top of a piano.
