Thank you for your answer.
If I have well understood, the right way to proceed must be :

test = function()
m = matrix(0, 2, 2)
par(new=T, fig = c(0,1,0,1), mai=c(0,0,0,0), mar=c(0,0,0,0), bty='n') x0 = c(0.25 , 0.75)
y0 = x0
image(x=x0, y=y0, z=m)
lines(c(0,1), c(1/4,1/4)) # horizontal line }

which seems indeed to work.
