Dear Frank,
Since you are using Plot you can combine multiple plots on a single Plot 
command. The GraphicsArray displays an array of different plots. So,
Plot[{Sin[x], x-x^3/6},{x,0,Pi}] will do it for you.
since the curves are close for 0<x<Pi/4 you probably need to plot it 
with different colors or other PlotStyle definitions
Plot[{Sin[x], x - x^3/6}, {x, 0, Pi}, PlotStyle -> {{}, Hue[0]}]. This 
will plot the curve of the polynomial with red color
