This tag is not for images that are painted, but is, instead, for images where there is a painting of some sort visible within the image. Often, such a painting will be within a picture frame which should also be tagged.
Given the fact that it is hard to tell if an image within an image is a painting or a photograph, it's better to assume that all things are paintings. However, if reasonable suspicion is given to the contrary, the photo tag may be used, though it is primarily used, but not exclusively, images containing, or framed to look like photographs.
