The Title of Honored Performance Artist of RSFSR (Заслуженный Артист РСФСР) was established in 1931 and was among the earliest such titles of distinction. It was bestowed for outstanding achievements in theatrical and musical performances, and less often, for superb work in cinematography and TV. Among the recipients were famous singers, actors, ballet dancers, theater directors and circus performers. The medal appeared only half a century later, in 1981, at which point it could be issued to all surviving holders of the title from the previous years. As a general rule, having the "Honored" title was a prerequisite for being considered for the "People's" title, and the latter usually could be awarded no less than five years after former. Relatively few of either were ever bestowed.
