way to copy an axes object into different figures

You can try fig.canvas.draw() to draw but as I have never tried the above not sure whether it will work.

Also this one does not show anything, which makes me start to believe that the axes[0,0].set_axes(ax) could be the step that fails?

Hi!

Is there a way to copy an axes object into different figures?
The idea would be to first create a valuable plot, save it on its own
into a file, and then add it to a subplots figure as part of an
overview?
I tried to play with this but can't make it to show up in an pylab session:

plot(arange(10))
ax = gca()

fig, axes = subplots(2,2)

axes[0,0].set_axes(ax)

If the above is correct, how can I make it show up now? fig.show() did
not work and fig.draw() needs an artist and a renderer which I am
unsure where to get them from?

Any hints, or which docs to read as usual apprectiated!
