The gallery was contemporary art flagship for three decades starting from the 1950s. It hosted first shows of Andy Warhol, as well as Max Ernst and a number of young artists. Warhol had four exhibitions in Bodley – in 1952, Drawings for a Boy Book, and then in 1956,1957 and 1959. It featured drawings as then the future pop-art master was illustrator in glossy magazines and worked in a completely different style. Today, the spot is taken by Guy Regal gallery showcasing European antiques.
