There is an excellent article by Mervyn Ruggles, "Paintings on a
photographic base," JAIC, Spring 1985, v. 24, n. 2, pp. 92-103.  As
he notes, there are many of these which have defied discovery.  I
assume, however, that you mean paintings in oil or other painted
media over an image and not other varieties (and there were many in
the 19th and early 20th century) of pastels and other applied kinds
of media over photographic images.
