Dear Mr. Harris,

I thank you for your invitation to dinner, which I cannot accept, since I don't eat in the evening. But I would be very pleased to go and chat with you tomorrow, Wednesday around 8:30.

Yours truly,

Henri Matisse"

Henri Matisse was a French artist, known for both his use of colour and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. He was a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but is known primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso, as one of the artists who best helped to define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the opening decades of the twentieth century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.
