There are various reasons why a web browser like Internet Explorer may fail to display pictures. If the picture is missing from the website itself, it is known as a broken image and only the administrator of that site can fix it. But often the solution rests in the end-user's browser configuration. Make sure the browser is set to display pictures and clear your cache if it is full.
