The main problem with saying that because the painting is preserved via photograph than what's done is done is, the painting likely had many more intricacies than a single photo could provide. Especially when it seems a lot of the photograph archives are low quality early digital camera images. What needs to be done to archive paintings is a full 3d depth scan to get all the bumps on the painting saved, use a color scanner on the painting to get the exact colors, and then take a photograph or scan, hopefully that of at least lower double digits in megapixels. With the amount of work that goes into a lot of famous painting's preserval processes, the digital transfer should take a similar amount of effort.
