A drawing of a family of cuts of a graph is an augmented drawing of the graph such that every cut is represented by a simple closed curve and vice versa.We show that the families of cuts that admit a drawing in which every cut is represented by an axis-parallel rectangle are exactly those that have a cactus model that can be rooted such that edges of the graph that cross a cycle of the cactus point to the root. This includes the family of all minimum cuts of a graph. The proof also yields an efficient algorithm to construct a drawing with axis-parallel rectangles if it exists.
