BUG: DataFrame.plot(kind='scatter') does not raise KeyError when unknown colormap is applied

This issue has been tracked since 2022-09-23.

Pandas version checks

  • I have checked that this issue has not already been reported.

  • I have confirmed this bug exists on the latest version of pandas.

  • I have confirmed this bug exists on the main branch of pandas.

Reproducible Example

import pandas as pd
iris = pd.read_csv('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mwaskom/seaborn-data/master/iris.csv')
iris.plot(x='sepal_length', y='sepal_width', colormap='unknown')
# -> TypeError raised as expected
iris.plot(x='sepal_length', y='sepal_width', colormap='unknown', kind='scatter')
# -> TypeError is expected but not raised at version 1.5.0

Issue Description

.plot(..., colormap='unknown') raises TypeError because the colormap is unknown, but .plot(..., colormap='unknown', kind='scatter') does raise TypeError.

Expected Behavior

.plot(..., cmap='unknown', kind='scatter') will raise TypeError.

This will raise a Waring with the newest matplotlib, since colormap has no effect in that scenario, even if a valid value is passed
