Can you give me an example of an artist/composer/performer who did commissioned work and non-commissioned work?
A commissioned work is one produced by an artist to order from a patron, who decides the subject matter and pays for the finished work, taking possession of it on completion and payment.
A non commissioned work is one the artist produces for themselves, to their own taste, and retains possession of unless they decide to sell or give it away at a later date.
Commissioned work - Michelangelo's paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, commissioned by Pope Julius II.
Non commissioned work - Beethoven's Third Symphony 'Eroica'

I had to explain a lot since I was first in the military: Commissioned = Officer = college graduate or equivalent Non commissioned = enlisted = high school education or equivalent It used to be officer = nobleman and soldier = serf Now they have to distinguish between classes and go by education level. The difference in treatment is extreme.
