Ariadne abandoned, the penitent Magdalene, the Virgin Advocate and Annunciate, John of Patmos, are all frequent themes in the history of art. In one sense, they are figures of absence at once. By relevant samples, here the aim is to make clear which kind of absence: abandonment, loss or expectation, but also – mainly in sacred art – the paradoxical effort to represent the presence of an absence. Something, what has to do not only with the past, but maybe with our future too.
