1 Moorgate EC2

This splendid pair of doors is on 1 to 5 Moorgate, a typically City office of 1906 by Mountford and Gruning, but the whole shebang was redeveloped behind the listed facade in the 1980s.
The bronze castings are swirly dramatic images of women, the one on the left almost nude, the one on the right modestly dressed. Spring and Autumn perhaps?
I have been unable to find who created these lovely things. All suggestions gratefully received.
