I reported ' Hebben ze verf op doek in de gouden eeuw gebruikt?', pretty sure it is OK too.

It's strange to use the perfect present in this sentence (just like it would be in English)

To me, he is correct. I don't get why you both say its wrong. I used Gebruikten zij verf op doek in de Gouden Eeuw? (which is correct), but maybe I could have also used that sentence he wrote.
