Matplotlib.artist.Artist.get_clip_box() in Python

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_clip_box() method

The get_clip_box() method in artist module of matplotlib library is used to get the clipbox.

Syntax: Artist.get_clip_box(self)

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter.

Returns: This method return the the animated state.
