Bright but diffused light.
 
And since I wrote my reply to the article, I have started using a tripod... This allows me to use a longer exposure (without getting any camera shake) - and a smaller aperture to keep the whole painting well focused.

 

You can even get away with photographing the painting behind glass if you use a polarizing filter but I reckon you will generally get a better photo if the painting is not yet framed behind glass.

Further to the above, I would definitely advise against using a flash - unless you can bounce it off one of those big umbrella-shaped light diffusers, or something.
