2.181 If the form of representation is the logical form, then the picture is called a logical picture.

My original comment was this: "From 2.17 and 2.18, every picture would seem to be a logical picture. So the idea that Wittgenstein's "pictures" are physical objects (or "metaphysical objects") seems to be a mistake."

But a picture might share logical form with reality without that being its particular representational form, mightn't it? In that case not every picture would be a logical picture. And does anyone think that pictures are objects?
