The talk, by Ian Boyd, Countryside Ranger runs from 1pm until 3pm on Sunday, October 21 in the Old Stable Courtyard visitors centre.

THE Burrell Collection is showing off one of the most important collections of works by the French artist Jean-François Millet in Britain - or is it?

The museum has been investigating whether the 11 works by Millet in Burrell's collection are really Millet.

A team of experts that included a curator, a photographer and conservators have examined and researched the Burrell works and their preliminary findings are included in the exhibition.

Investigations continue, with staff consulting colleagues in museums and universities at home and abroad.

Visitors are also asked to give their opinion, and findings will be shared later this month.

The display, which runs until January 6, is the first project in preparing a catalogue of Sir William Burrell's collection of 19th-century French art.
