Interesting question! Hard to be accurate, but let me take as an example a recent major sleeper we just acquired (all timings very approximate):

At the illustration in the catalogue - a good hour (not all at once).
At the online image - half an hour.
At the high-res image sent by the auctioneer - probably 3 or 4 hours in total (again not all at once).
At the picture itself at the auction viewing - no more than 5 minutes.
At the picture after it was bought and shipped home, and before conservation began - probably in total 5 or 6 hours (slightly guessing here).
With the restorer before cleaning began - at least 3 hours, all at once.
With the restorer as conservation progressed - days and days (this is the best bit).
Between the end of conservation and selling the picture - ideally, as little as possible! But many hours of pleasure. It's by my desk as I type this.

By contrast, I glide past a Hirst in nanoseconds.

Every staffer will receive a $5,000 bonus, prorated for those who began work during the year. In a companywide letter, chief executive Markus Dohle noted the publisher's "unprecedented success" in 2012 thanks to EL James' erotic trilogy.

Random House has sold more than 35 million copies of the glorified porn for housewives.

Maybe instead of a business page, we should have a bondage page.
