There are two complete gamescores and several pictures!
|Dec-27-07|| ||Karpova: A feature article on Nardus:
|Jan-18-08|| ||Karpova: <‘Several of the greatest collectors of Old Master paintings in turn-of-the-century America were sold fakes or wildly misattributed works by Leo Nardus. Drawing on newly discovered documents, Jonathan Lopez explains how Nardus was exposed and discusses the impact of his chicanery on the art market.’>|
|Apr-04-08|| ||blackburne: Leo Nardus was sponsor of David Janowski in the world championships and other tournaments.|
|Apr-04-08|| ||Knight13: He got lucky against Marshall.|

"Portrait de bédouine" (Painting):
|Nov-06-08|| ||al wazir: According to James Fenton (http://www.nybooks.com/articles/art...) "the majority of the ninety-three paintings that [Philadelphia magnate P.A.B.] Widener had bought from the dealer Leo Nardus were fakes or otherwise worthless. Widener was ready to confront the swashbuckling, mustachioed champion swordsman and chess master Nardus . . . [but Widener's lawyer] John G. Johnson . . . who had been responsible for introducing Nardus to Widener . . . effectively subsidized the partial compensation an unrepentant Nardus was induced to offer."|

Bottom line: There were persistent rumours that Nardus - a gifted portraitist on top of all his other accomplishments, was an active forger of Old Masters. Although Nardus's grandson disputes that notion vehemently, it is clear that Nardus did sometimes sell forgeries.
Leo the cheeky rascal, thx for the links @all

|Sep-16-18|| ||sudoplatov: I'm guessing that Nardus might have been the inspiration for Charles Bonnet in "How to Steal a Million."|
|Sep-16-18|| ||MissScarlett: Kirsan Ilyumzhinov - allegedly - stole a lot more than that. But as he gave some of it to chess-players, all is forgiven.|
|Sep-16-18|| ||Granny O Doul: "...had also many other interests". What a Renaissance man, worthy of his namesake!|
I like way he renamed himself. Similar to the late actress Pier Angeli (born Anna Maria Pierangeli).
