Catalogue Note

At Surrey's induction into the Order of Canada in 1982, his citation noted that he had been "the leading exponent of urban landscape painting in Canada."

It continued:

His Montreal street scenes convey an emotional vision of the modern city, with its anonymous crowds and individual solitudes.  His expressive style and a poetic humanitarianism constitute a unique contribution to Canadian art.
