People’s Artist of the RSFSR
People's Artist of the RSFSR (Russian: Народный артист РСФСР, Narodnyǐ Artist RSFSR) was an honorary title granted to artists of the Soviet Union who lived in the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR). It was inferior to the People's Artist of the USSR and superior to the Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR.
Nomenclature and significance
The term is confusingly used to translate two Russian language titles: Народный артист РСФСР (fem. Народная артистка РСФСР), awarded in performing arts and Народный художник РСФСР, granted in some visual arts.
