Two works with a minimal value are enough to qualify, or possibly even one work if the owner expresses the desire to acquire more. Some of the richest buyers try to fly under the radar.

The gallery — which works out of a first-floor space in Mayfair, previously the office of a Scandinavian hedge fund — had an unexpectedly successful first show, which was on the theme...
