Story Behind The Art
Being a spy means saying "farewell" on a regular basis. It doesn't, however, mean the spy is going anywhere. Even a lover may be deceived to help make your departure more believable. She is not an agent, but she may be an unwitting source for the other side. He is saying goodbye, but only because an operation demands it. Ostrovsky painted Farewell in 1999, and included the World Trade Center towers in the background as a way to symbolize New York City. After September 11, 2001, however, an additional interpretation became evident. Appropriately, Ostrovsky had named this painting Farewell.
