Freda Reiter – ‘Alone in Oval Office’ – pastel drawing

Titled “Alone in Oval Office,” this pastel imagines Nixon shedding a tear as he prepares to sign his letter of resignation. While the resignation took place on August 9, 1974, the drawing is dated 1975. Reiter might have prepared the drawing for a television program recapping the Watergate saga.
