Industriebauern (1920, English: Industrial Farmers) is an oil painting with collage by Georg Scholz. It depicts a Bible-clutching farmer with money erupting from his forehead, seated next to his monstrous wife who cradles a piglet. Their subhuman son, his head open at the top to show that it is empty, is torturing a frog. Perhaps Scholz' best-known work, it is typical of the paintings he produced in the early 1920s, combining a very controlled, crisp execution with corrosive sarcasm.
The painting was used on the cover of Comic Grotesque.
