16C Europeans Imagine American Women

Some suggest Hieronymus Bosch's (c. 1450−1516) birds, animals, plants, and nude human beings in this segment of The Garden of Earthly Delights might be inspired by the early images brought back to Europe by the early travelers to America newly opened by the Spanish at that time. This work was done about 1500. Too much speculation for me.
