Scholz’ early works were determinedly critical of society. One of them goes back to a painful personal experience, when, on return hungry from the war, he attempted to buy something to eat for himself and his family, only to be pointed by a farmer in the direction of the compost heap. It was this sort of heartless individual to whose meanness the artist erected a lasting monument in his Industrial Farmers of 1920.
