Questions to Jesse


Q. Do you have a gallery or dealer discount ?
A. Galleries and Dealers are welcome and may call for quantity discounts if purchasing 12 or more butterflies for resale. Each butterfly is unique and hand painted. There are no two exactly alike. For paintings and hand painted prints, please contact us.

Q. Have you ever considered taking a DNA test ?
A. I was asked at the Christmas party when I made the announcement to friends if I would ever consider taking a DNA test to further my cause and show my relationship to the Van Gogh family. Upon the death of my foster father, he indicated in a letter he left for me that Vincent had been adopted by the Van Gogh family when Vincent was just an infant. Vincent's foster father was a priest who received the infant from someone in his Parish. However, no one has ever claimed to have left him on the Van Gogh's front door step. Taking a DNA test to prove my hereditary roots to the Van Gogh family would be fruitless since Vincent was adopted himself and no one knew his true biological parents.


Q. Do you get tired of all the skepticism ?
A. Let's just say that I know that many people are skeptical of the relationship I have claimed. In fact, I was one of the biggest skeptics even after reading the 20+ page letter from the man that I had always thought to be my biological father for over 50 years. I did not tell anyone about what I had read in the letter that was left to me upon his death, not even my wife, until June 2000. I simply wanted to ignore the letter since I was happy with my life just as it was, or as I thought that it was.
