Truth, 26 Apr 1900: “[At the New Gallery] “Thou Unrelenting Past” (No. 37) Mrs. A. L. Swynnerton gives another of those morbidly elaborate studies of old age which are now only too frequently seen in our picture shows.

From American Art News, vol. 17, no. 21 (1 March 1919): “a portrait study of an old peasant woman by Annia Swynnerton, the technique delightful, the color warm and rich and the human appeal irresistible.”

In The Evening News, 24 October 1933, the title is given as “The Unrelenting Path.”
