Every picture represents space, but what of time? While some pictures clearly can capture moments or durations, we might think others are simply neutral on temporal aspects of the scenes they depict. I examine an argument for thinking otherwise: that by supposing that every picture depicts at least a moment, we can explain why no pictures attribute to their objects incompatible properties. I defend this argument against some obvious objections, and compare its explanation with others that appeal to the mechanics of depiction itself. My investigation is intended as a contribution to the relatively new field of picture semantics.
