The main focus of Surette's art may be seen as twofold: his depiction of Canadian history particularly Acadia - his own heritage; and his passion for the sea. In the final analysis they merge into one since the Acadians, having colonized Nova Scotia as farmers early in the 17th century, later took to the high seas in large numbers and became fishermen.


Surette's magnum opus is considered to be his rendition on canvas of six important events in Canadian history surrounding the Acadians. The one displayed above is chronologically the fifth in the series. The one entitled "Burn and Lay Waste" was the first to be painted.


Enjoy viewing many of the artist's finest works, from photographs taken over the fifty year period prior to his death. Experience the saga of Acadia through Surette's eyes. Vivid replays of historical events, fishing schooners, people, village life. Music of your choice.
