Comment:

Painting of the Miller House.

Label on back reads:
Painted by Alice Boughton of George Miller House, given to E. Puc by Susan Boughton, 11 February 1952.

The painting is probably dated about 1930-1940 based on the white color of the structure and when Boughton was living in Brookhaven Hamlet.

The verso of the painting seems to give the artist's name as "Boupleton."
However, no Boupleton could be found in any U.S. census listing, nor in web searches. While the name appears clear on the label, it was concluded that it was being misread.
There was a well known photographer, Alice Boughton, living with Ida C. Haskell on Beaver Dam Road in 1930, in the residence now known as the Phillips house (Historic Site ID Br18.2-S). While she was primarily a photographer, she was known to have also done some painting. It seems likely that this is the artist. Another painting by Alice Boughton may be found at the Brookhaven Free Library, and appears to be of their Brookhaven residence. It is of a similar style.
