His eyes are bandaged, apparently he lost his sight. A fragile girl pulls an adult man, his weapon. Despite the severity of the situation, she believes that they will win. The image that Marat presented to us is the image of a hero, majestic and courageous. The landscape, which the artist depicted in the picture, only enhances the whole drama of this episode. This style is inherent in all paintings of the artist.
