Hieronymus Bosch: Weltbilder und Traumwerk (1975) is a study on Hieronymus Bosch by Hans Holländer. It is reviewed by Eric De Bruyn here[1].

In the chapter on the legacy, influence and appreciation of Bosch, Holländer points to three works in Italy influenced by Bosch's visual language: The Dream of Raphael a print by Raimondi, la notte (1534), a painting by Battista Dossi and Orpheus and Eurydice, a painting of 1511 by Titian.

Excerpt from the Dutch translation

Ook is de vermenging van architectonische vormen met die van planten, bloemen en knoppen, verwant aan bepaalde uitingen van laat-gotische architectuur. Alleen hebben we hier niet te maken met een gedaanteverwisseling van bouwwerk naar plant, maar met een bouwwerk van plantaardige vormen, die echter reeds hierom plantaardig noch bouwkundig kunnen zijn, omdat Bosch een kleur gekozen heeft die volkomen kunstmatig is, namelijk een giftig meekraprose. --Hieronymus Bosch: Weltbilder und Traumwerk (1976) by Hans Holländer (on the fountain[2] in the left 'paradise' panel of The Garden of Earthly Delights).

English translation:

Also, the blending of architectural forms with those of plants, flowers and buds, relates to certain manifestations of late Gothic architecture. Only we are not dealing with a transformation of building to plant, but with a building of plant forms, which, however, can be neither plant nor building, because Bosch has chosen a color that is completely artificial, ie a toxic madder pink.--tr.
