New Chinese Clothes III outlines a figure using heavy brushstrokes and illegible calligraphic characters burned into the paper. Although burnt rather than painted, the Chinese characters themselves evoke the poetic inscriptions found in most traditional landscape paintings, and ironically allude to a vanishing literary tradition in the contemporary era. This painting is similar to a painting of the same series in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Hong Kong Museum of Art.
