We examine the aspectual type of pictures, and how it interacts with temporal progression in pictorial narratives. Some examples suggest that pictures can have stative aspect and that such pictures do not advance time, paralleling the situation in natural language. However, we show on the basis of formal semantics that all pictures have stative informational content, so that a construction rule for pictorial discourse representations can not be sensitive to aspect. This suggests that the temporal interpretation rule for pictorial narratives involves invariant temporal progression.
