Abstract: Let $ X$ be a Polish space, let $ Y$ be a separable metrizable space, and let $ f \colon X \to Y$ be a continuous surjection. We prove that if the image under $ f$ of every open set or every closed set is resolvable, then $ Y$ is Polish. This generalizes similar results by Sierpiński, Vainštain, and Ostrovsky.
