Distance for maximum resolution?

Theoretical question...

Start with a quality digital camera of any brand and a full line of high quality lenses for that camera.

The goal is to photograph the full area of an 8x10 foot mural in one shot and capture the most detail possible.

Obviously the more distance between the camera and object, the longer the lens and as you get closer, wider lens would be needed. Would there be a noticeable difference in image resolution (the ability to discern fine detail) between images captured with, for example, a 200mm, 100mm, 70mm, and 24mm lens?
