Haden qualified as a doctor and practised medicine with great success (Queen Victoria was a patient of his). He found that etching, while still an amateur, helped discipline his hand for surgery. He owned a considerable collection of Rembrandt etchings and was a connoiseur of Old Master prints. His brother-in-law was James Abbot McNeill Whistler who influenced him in pursuing his art professionally. They worked together for a while but differences in temperament drove them apart. Although he etched portraits in his early years, he later became one of the best landscape etchers of the time. He was a founder member of the Royal Society of Etchers and Engravers and tirelessly promoted prints as original works of art. He frequently visited Paris and greatly admired the etchings of Charles Meryon.
