Haden began taking art lessons when he was a medical student. His first etchings were done in 1843 and 1844 after a series of landscapes that he had drawn in Italy. In 1847, the physician married Deborah Delano, the older half sister of James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and became one of the most influential landscape etchers of the 1800s. He collected Rembrandt’s etchings, and his wooded landscapes and clumps of trees, such as A By-Road in Tipperary, reflects the influence of the Dutch master.
