(also known as Herri de Dinant, Herry de
Patinir, and Civetta) (c. 1510 – c. 1555–1560) was a Flemish
Northern Renaissance and Mannerist landscape painter.
Very little is positively known about the artist. He is believed
to be a certain Herry de Patenir who joined Antwerp's Guild of St.
Luke in 1535 as a painter and is also believed to be a court painter
for the d'Este Dukes of Ferrara, where he ended his career known as
"Il Civetta". He contributed, along with his possible-uncle Joachim
Patinir, to a distinct style of Northern Renaissance landscape
painting that combined small history or religious scenes into
compositions defined by perspective and atmospheric effects. Also,
along with a group of Antwerp-based followers of Hieronymus Bosch
that included Jan Mandyn, Pieter Huys, and Jan Wellens de Cock, Met
de Bles continued the tradition of fantastic imagery into northern
Christ in Limbo
