Outstanding colour plates of the Crimea at the outbreak of the Crimean War, Simpson was engaged upon views of the Baltic battles for Colnaghi & Son and when that firm decided to publish a large illustrated work on the Crimean campaign from sketches made on the spot Simpson was selected for the work.

This was the beginning of the enterprise which earned him the name 'Crimean Simpson'. These plates are an impressive piece of work, not only artistically and technically, but also as pictorial reporting. Simpson must in this way rank as an early war correspondent and a pioneer war-artist and received several commissions to paint incidents in the war for the Queen
