To capture, tick, name or what?
In reviews of art shows, especially paintings, you often read that So-and-so has "captured" a likeness or mood or whatever. It's a word (or cliche) that even celebrated critics use all the time without, it seems, a second thought. It's quite irritating. The dictionary defines the verb 'capture' as "imprison, arrest, detain, incarcerate, take into custody, jail, confine" etc. The antonym is "liberate". None of these seems applicable.
