NEW PALTZ, N.Y. – The New York Art Crime Team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently returned two paintings by 19th-century portrait artist Ammi Phillips to Historic Huguenot Street (HHS). The two portraits, depicting prominent New Paltz residents Dirck D. Wynkoop (1738-1827) and his wife Annatje Eltinge Wynkoop (1748-1827), were missing for 50 years, after they were stolen on February 16, 1972 while on display at the 1799 Ezekiel Elting (aka LeFevre) House on Huguenot Street.
