This is the Martin model 150 G/H proposal.
A 40 seat airliner.

Variants running from A to P...

The model 158 was a larger aircraft.

I plead guilty for wrongly assuming the Streamliner was the Model 158. I had identified it as such on my now defunct Martin page. Indeed my list has the right allocation (Model 150) while Model 158 was a larger 70,000 lb land transport project for TWA. Sorry about the confusion!

Of interest is the fact that this was one of a few Martin types designed by James S. Mc Donnell, Jr. before he left to found his own highly successful company.

Here is a set of patents related to the Streamliner (attachments 4 to 7 are the PDF files):

Based on the Model 163, the Model 193 was meant to be a large transport, similar to the Hughes Spruce Goose. Building five hundred six-engine Model 193's could win the war, declared Glenn Martin, and company ads frequently depicted it as a postwar airliner.
Long before the Model 193 could have been ready, the tide had turned in the Battle of the Atlantic.
(based on information on the Glenn L Martin Aviation Museum website)

was it a Model-156 ?.

I doubt it ... probably just generic concept art. The Model 156 'Soviet Clipper' just looked like a twin-tailled Model 130.

It is not a known design and as Apophenia mentioned not
the Soviet Clipper model 156.

As far as I found this illustration is a phantasy based on incomplete information
about the first itterations of the model 130 which was
designed with 3 vertical fins and rudders.
On the other hand the wing struts and sponsons  (seawings) seems to be
inspired by the Consolidated flying boats in the Commodore series..
