The article is dedicated to the problem of artificial illumination of landscape compositions. As exemplified by the Château de VauxleVicomte palace and garden ensemble of the XVIIth century and by the National memorial complex of the 11th September 2001, features of artificial illumination of historical and modern landscape compositions are considered. Methods of revelation of existing planning and spatial elements in historical gardens are described. Merits and demerits of use of modern technological capabilities of artificial illumination are shown.
