Visionary Experience in the Golden Age of Spanish Art (1995) is a book by Victor Stoichita on visionary art of the Golden Age of Spanish Art. On the cover is the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm version of Veil of Veronica by Francisco de Zurbarán.

From the back cover: "... exploring the paradoxical nature [of this type of painting]: the representation of the unrepresentable, the making visible of the invisible. [...] The challenge consisted both in painting what was manifest to the saint yet unseen by all others in the painting."
