Lembit Nõmmeots studied at the Estonian State Art School and was a pupil of Estonian impressionist painter Ants Laikmaa. After further study at the art academy in Tartu, he moved to Sweden at the end of World War II . He became friends with painter Woldemar Tank (1903-1997) and together they exhibited at the art museum in Halland in 1948. Nõmmeots also exhibited with his daughter Nancy Nõmmeots (1933-2012) in Gällivare in 1958 and also with Dutch modernist painter Wim Bosma (1902-1985) in Umeå that same year. Abroad, he exhibited at the Esposizione Internazionale Di Arte SacraIn Rome and also in joint exhibitions in Canberra, Copenhagen, Montreal, Sidney and New York.

Nõmmeots was a modernist painter and is best known for his angular cubist still life works, often rendered in bold colors. Done in 1957, this painting is an excellent example of the artist's mature modernist style. The work depicts a still life of fruit and table objects presented as simplified cubistic shapes and rendered in thick paint. The artist also employed a sophisticated technique of working bits of unpainted canvas into the composition.

The painting is an oil on canvas and measures 12.5" x 20.5" unframed and 16.5" x 24.5" with the frame included. The work is signed upper left and titled and dated 1957 on the stretcher. The new dark mocha frame features subtle gold highlights and both it and the painting are in excellent condition. Overall, it is a strong, eye-catching piece of modernism that will work well in almost any interior.
