If you can afford it, get yourself a cropped sensor DSLR and a 50mm macro lens.
Here are some artworks I have photographed with the Sony a700 and various lenses:

The EXIF data is available for each expanded image. The best results for me was when I was using a 100mm macro lens. The downside of using 100mm is having to step back quite a bit to get the artwork in the frame, but the results are excellent.
