Rather, plots created from pandas objects using pandas methods are just wrappers for more complex calls made to a plotting library called Matplotlib. This is a well-known library in the scientific Python community, one of the first plotting systems, and perhaps the most commonly used one, though other plotting systems are looking to supplant it.
