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.get_alpha() method

The get_alpha() method in artist module of matplotlib library is used to get the alpha value used for blending.

Syntax: Artist.get_alpha(self)

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter.

Returns: This method return the alpha value used for blending.

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

Example 1:




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.artist import Artist  
import matplotlib 
import numpy as np 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
    
  
np.random.seed(10**7
mu = 121 
sigma = 21
x = mu + sigma * np.random.randn(1000
     
num_bins = 100
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
     
n, bins, patches = ax.hist(x, num_bins, 
                           density = 1
                           color ='green'
                           alpha = 0.7
     
y = ((1 / (np.sqrt(2 * np.pi) * sigma)) *
     np.exp(-0.5 * (1 / sigma * (bins - mu))**2)) 
    
ax.plot(bins, y, '--', color ='black'
    
ax.set_xlabel('X-Axis'
ax.set_ylabel('Y-Axis'
    
w = Artist.get_alpha(ax) 
ax.set_title("Alpha Value : "+str(w)) 
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_alpha()\
function Example', fontweight ="bold"
  
plt.show()

Output:

Example 2:




# Implementation of matplotlib function
from matplotlib.artist import Artist  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
import numpy as np 
  
    
rx, ry = 3., 1.
  
value1 = rx * ry * np.pi 
value2 = np.arange(0, 3 * np.pi + 0.01, 0.2
value3 = np.column_stack([rx / value1 * np.cos(value2), 
                          ry / value1 * np.sin(value2)]) 
     
x, y, s, c = np.random.rand(4, 99
s *= 10**2.
     
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
ax.scatter(x, y, s, c, marker = value3) 
    
Artist.set_alpha(ax, 0.5
    
w = Artist.get_alpha(ax) 
ax.set_title("Alpha Value : "+str(w)) 
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_alpha()\
function Example', fontweight ="bold"
  
plt.show()
