    commission

    Paintings would often be commissioned by the wealthy as a way of showing their status

    This is an extract from an article in the newspaper.

    Only persons can be commissioned to write, make or create something, right?

    You can commission somebody to paint a picture for you, or you can commission a painting from somebody.
