    No idea but it looks like something from the early 1900s.

    Well they like to reference stuff, clearly. Names escape me.

    Uhm...you'll never track that down, sorry. Just generic crap from that era and I seriously doubt the "artist" of the "piece" was ever known.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    At first I thought it looked a bit like Tamara Lempika . 2 minutes search with google images and tamara lempika + awaken lead me to Jared Joslin, who is obviously the painter you were looking for.

    I'll be the first to admit my surprise...however, the fact that the artist is decent (though clearly a second-rate Lempicka) and has built his body of work around a style 80-90 years old does not change the fact that there were thousands of generic images just like the one you posted churned out during that period. The image you posted is also not nearly as well executed as the work in his current site and I would guess is the reason it can't be found there.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    Yeah, if you like that kind of stuff, definitely check out Lempika (also Romaine Brooks, although she's a bit weirder). Might as well go back to the source, rather than pastiche.

    I'm mostly referring to the pose.

    Crap, I keep trying to remember the images. The pose was used alot, and it was during the Renaissance.

    Dude, it's just your standard-issue languishing-on-a-divan pose...

    There's only so many ways to languish, it's bound to look similar to other languishing ladies whether the artist deliberately meant it to or not.

    The cropping is kinda weird & she feels like she's floating, mostly around the cropped legs.

    Strange.

    Ah, you're probably right.

    Generally these poses are called "Odalisques"...and not the Renaissance so much...more like 19th century. The Orientalists made it popular because they did so many. It turns out it was the name of a slave/harem girl whose relaxed, "casting couch" pose became kind of the model for what is now almost a genre of paintings.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    Manet and Titiaan's versions are pretty well-known, Ingres also made one, but with the back turned towards the viewer.
