The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Montreal

From two pages of notes found in Tinning’s estate: “As a token of my expertise (and an excuse for my temerity) I was consulted on the following list as an artist-not a decorator:
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel (Montreal):
– the mural ceilings of the Maritime Bar
– the stage and decor for The Cafe at night (2 times)
– the Venetian foyer murals between the Maritime Bar and The Cafe
– the decoration of the Oval Dining Room”
