Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, filed documents Friday that detailed more of their business holdings and investments, CNN reported.

Among the newly revealed wealth is an art collection that documents show is worth up to $25 million. 

The couple was previously criticized for failing to disclose information about their artwork, which had appeared in the background of many of Ivanka’s Instagram pictures.

According to the Office of Government Ethics, federal employees are required to report any artwork that is kept for investment purposes and worth more than $1,000. Kushner is a senior adviser, while Trump is an assistant to her father, President Donald Trump.

But despite the collection being worth millions, a lawyer for Kushner told Artnet that the art was “for decorative purposes” only.

The couple decided to include details in updated financial filings “out of an abundance of caution,” their attorney said. The numbers reported are estimates, however, as federal employees are able to provide details of their wealth and assets in ranges rather than precise figures. According to the new filings, the couple’s combined assets are worth at least $207 million, but that figure could reach more than $762 million if at the upper end of the range. 

Take a look at some of their artworks below:

Some of these pieces are worth as much as $500,000, but the couple did not originally disclose this information in financial reports when Kushner became a federal employee.
