Mischa Richter: The Unforgiven

An original 1990 New Yorker cartoon by Mischa Richter brilliantly conflates the political and the personal. Note too the body language: how the husband leans forward in a bid for the marriage counsellor's attention and empathy while the wife and the counsellor demonstrate their respective personal and professional emotional detachment.

"She can forgive Nixon, but she can't forgive me."
