What he has in common with other representatives of the new realism is that he studied, between 1955 and 1960, at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Between 1963 and 1991 he was a teacher at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Arnhem. He was a teacher of Arja van den Berg and Paul Damsté, among others. De Haan initially focused on photorealism and gradually started to focus more on large multicolored abstract paintings that evoke an imaginative and slightly brash world. Often several artists from the aforementioned group contributed to such paintings.
The untimely death of his partner Maarten van Dreven (Sneek, 1941 - The Hague, 2001) has not affected the Cobra-like color palette of his paintings, but the dreamy and the brash have since become a thing of the past.
