The set_visible() method in artist module of matplotlib library is used to set the artist’s visibility.

Syntax: Artist.set_visible(self, b)



Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
from mpl_toolkits.axisartist.axislines import Subplot 
  
  
fig = plt.figure() 
     
ax = Subplot(fig, 111
fig.add_subplot(ax) 
  
Artist.set_visible(ax.axis["left"], False
Artist.set_visible(ax.axis["top"], False
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.set_visible()\
function Example', fontweight ="bold"

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
import numpy as np
  
  
X = np.arange(-20, 20, 0.5
Y = np.arange(-20, 20, 0.5
U, V = np.meshgrid(X, Y) 
      
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
ax.quiver(X, Y, U, V) 
w = ax.get_xaxis()
  
Artist.set_visible(w, False)
  
fig.suptitle('matplotlib.artist.Artist.set_visible()\
function Example', fontweight ="bold"
