Tsiolkovsky had plenty of drawings, but they are mostly schematic - he wasn't illustrator but mostly a philosopher (stereotypical Russian Cosmist of late XIX, like Fyodorov but less crazy).

But that drawing looks more modern, I think even 1950+, and there may be multiple sources of inspirations. I guess it is from numerous of space-related books that are already forgotten, so it isn't easy to find.
