Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. The Artist class contains Abstract base class for objects that render into a FigureCanvas. All visible elements in a figure are subclasses of Artist.

matplotlib.artist.Artist.draw() method

The draw() method in the artist module of the matplotlib library is used to draw the Artist using the given renderer.

Syntax: Artist.draw(self, renderer, \*args, \*\*kwargs)

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters.

  • renderer: This parameter is the RendererBase subclass.

Returns: This method does not return any value.

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.artist.Artist.draw() function in matplotlib:

Example 1:




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.artist import Artist
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  
       
fig, ax = plt.subplots()  
       
def tellme(s):  
    ax.set_title(s, fontsize = 16)  
    fig.canvas.draw() 
    renderer = fig.canvas.renderer 
    Artist.draw(ax, renderer) 
     
tellme('matplotlib.artist.Artist.draw() function Example'
ax.grid() 
  
plt.show()

Output:

Example 2:




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.artist import Artist
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  
       
    
fig = plt.figure()  
ax = fig.add_subplot(111, projection ='3d')  
       
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.1)  
ax.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, rstride = 5,   
                  cstride = 5)  
       
for angle in range(0, 90):  
    ax.view_init(30, angle) 
    fig.canvas.draw() 
    renderer = fig.canvas.renderer 
    Artist.draw(ax, renderer)  
    plt.pause(.001
    
    fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.draw() function Example'
ax.grid() 
  
plt.show()
