We can create subplots in Matplotlib by calling plt.subplots(~).

Example

To create a figure object with 3 rows of subplots and 2 columns:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

fig, ax = plt.subplots(3, 2)
fig.subplots_adjust(hspace=0.5, wspace=0.3) # Adjust the spacing between subplots
plt.show()

This produces the following output:

The resulting figure is composed of an array of axes objects. To add data we need to index into one of the axes objects:

fig, ax = plt.subplots(3, 2)
fig.subplots_adjust(hspace=0.5, wspace=0.3) # Adjust the spacing between subplots

# Add data to the top-left subplot
ax[0, 0].plot([1,2,3], [1,2,3])
plt.show()

We can see that data is plotted onto the top-left subplot:
