Description (last modified by kcrisman)

From this answer, an interesting sort of example (maybe could be spruced a little) which could be useful in the documentation for plotting.

#make some graphs
# plot main figure
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
figure = Figure()
main_plot = figure.add_axes((0.2,0.2,0.7,0.7))
g.matplotlib('a.svg', figure=figure, sub=main_plot)
# plot an inset
inset = figure.add_axes((0.6,0.2,0.3,0.3))
g_ins.matplotlib('a.svg', figure=figure, sub=inset)
# display graph (note that only single sage Graphics object has to be saved )'a.svg', figure=figure, sub=inset)
UPD: if figures are drawn strangely, add
to matplotlib() parameters. By default it is 1.0, which may be undesired.
Also, you may want to draw the figure itself, not by Graphics().save() function. Replace the last line with the following:
from matplotlib.backends.backend_agg import FigureCanvasAgg

The user says

For some time, I was looking for a way how to generate several sage Graphics() objects and plot them on a matplotlib canvas in an arbitrary arrangement, using .matplotlib() function. It went out not being straightforward. I decided that the solution I've found may be interesting for others as well.

apparently this shows how to plot using matplotlib a graph made with Sage plot command. I'm looking for the other way round: plot with Sage a matplotlib graphics (for example made by the pylab.imshow command).
