How can I attach a pyplot function to a figure instance? (Matplotlib)

To attach a pyplot function to a figure instance, we can use figure() method and add an axes to it.


  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
  • Create a new figure or activate an existing figure using figure() method.
  • Add an '~.axes.Axes' to the figure as part of a subplot arrangement.
  • Set a title to this axis using set_title() method.
  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True

fig = plt.figure()

ax = fig.add_subplot()
ax.set_title("My Title!")
