How to get the list of axes for a figure in Pyplot?

PythonMatplotlibServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To get a list of axes of a figure, we will first create a figure and then, use get_axes() method to get the axes and set the labels of those axes.

  • Create xs and ys using numpy and fig using figure() method. Create a new figure, or activate an existing figure.
  • Use add_subplot() method. Add an '~.axes.Axes' to the figure as part of a subplot arrangement, where nrows=1, ncols=1 and index=1.
  • . Get the axes of the fig, and set the xlabel and ylabel.
  • Plot x and y data points with red color.
  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import numpy as np
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.00, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True
xs = np.linspace(1, 10, 10)
ys = np.tan(xs)
fig = plt.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(111)
ax.plot(xs, ys, c='red')
