Herri met de Bles (also known as Herri de Dinant, Herry de Patinir, and Civetta) (born ca. 1510, died ca. 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 Mannerism.
