Early Life and Education
George Scholz was born in Germany and raised on a farm. After graduating from Huron High School, he went on to work at Berry Hatchery, Blish-Mize, Paige Airways Caves and Lancaster CO-OP Lumber yard.
Scholz had an extensive career, serving as a teacher, principal and superintendent of schools. Additionally, he organized community groups and volunteered at local museums.
He was an active conservation advocate and organizer for the Sevastopol Arbor Day Program. Additionally, he had longstanding support of organizations such as The Nature Conservancy and The Clearing.
Scholz was renowned for his ability to soothe crowds and resolve delicate problems with ease. He earned himself the reputation of “getting things done.”
Georg Scholz began his artistic journey in Karlsruhe, Germany. He attended the Academy and studied under Hans Thoma, Lovis Corinth and Wilhelm Trubner.
After serving in World War I, he adopted a more pragmatic outlook and turned to art for solace. In 1919 he co-founded the artist collective Rih in Karlsruhe with the purpose of sparking social change through artistic expression.
He joined the Communist Party in 1919 and used his paintings to express harsh criticism of postwar Germany’s social order. Industrial Farmers of 1920 is one such painting, depicting a Bible-clutching farmer with money erupting from his forehead as well as his monstrous wife cradling a piglet.
Achievements and Honors
Georg Scholz was a German realist painter whose works combined cubist ideas with futurist ones. He was one of the founders of the New Objectivity group, which practiced an unflinching form of realism.
He also featured in numerous movies, such as ‘Kirmes’ (directed by Wolfgang Staudte), ‘Das Madchen und der Staatsanwalt’ (directed by Jurgen Goslar), ‘Liebe will gelernt sein’ and ‘Ostwind’; for which he received the Gold Ribbon (Bundesfilmpreis).
Gotz George made appearances in several television shows. He was part of the ‘Schimanski’-episodes ‘Der Golem’ and ‘Asyl’, both nominated for an Emmy Award in 2004.
George Scholz is renowned for his Industrial Farmers paintings. These artworks depict the convergence of Prussian militarism, Protestantism, and conservative ideology with peasant agriculture.
According to the artist, these intertwined conservative ideologies had become deeply embedded in rural populations. He further observed the provincial embourgeoisement that resulted from their incorporation into industrial capitalism’s modes.
Scholz’s work thus used the farmer as a metaphor for his critique of postwar Germany’s social and economic order. Particularly, his disfiguration of rural peasants in Industrial Farmers illustrates this estrangement from reality.
