Oddball thought for you. Nikon's 40mm macro for crop sensors on an adapter, if you need something wider. Although, it is a 'G' lens, which means you would have to use something like the more expensive Metabones adapter.
I have years of experience doing flat-field copy work with my Nikon's both digital and analog, although I've never done anything like this with my Fuji's. As you seem to understand, it is tougher to do well than most imagine. For something 'flat' like paintings, I'm a strong proponent of using a lens corrected for flat-field work, shot at f/8-11, as best compromise between sharpness, depth of field, and diffraction. My standard is my 60mm micro Nikkor set to manual focus. AF is just irritating for copy work.
Getting even lighting on those larger pieces is going to be a royal pain too. FEIT makes some high CRI LEDs (93, in 2700, 3000 and 5000K colors) that are good enough for most of the things that I do professionally, although they still might not be enough for an odd pigment in a painting. Philips also makes some full spectrum (98CRI, 5000K), 48" T8 tubes that you could use in inexpensive, shop light fixtures.
