Almost nothing is known about the life of the artist. In particular, his name is unknown. The nickname “meth de Bles” – “with a white spot” – he probably received a white curl in his hair. He also wore the Italian nickname “Civetta” (Italian Civetta) – “owl” – because his monogram, which he used as a signature to his paintings, was a small figure of an owl.

He spent most of his career in Antwerp. It is assumed that he was the nephew of Joachim Patinir, and the real name of the artist was Herrie de Patinir (Herry de Patinir). In any case, in 1535, a certain Herrie de Patinir joined the Antwerp guild of St. Luke.

Herrimet de Bles is also ranked among a group of South Dutch artists – followers of Hieronymus Bosch, along with Jan Mundine, Jan Wellens de Coke and Peter Geis. These masters continued the tradition of Bosch’s fantastic painting, and their work is sometimes called “northern Mannerism” (in contrast to the Mannerism of Italian). According to one information, the artist died in Antwerp, on the other – in Ferrara, at the court of the Duke of Este. Neither the year of his death nor the fact whether he ever visited Italy is unknown.
