    Jean-Pierre Haag was the son of Jean Haag, a mechanic, and his wife Genevieve Maloizel living in Elbeuf, Normandy. All his life, the artist kept a property in this area.

    He joined the Ecouen Painters Colony on 1870 and settled down at rue de Paris (currently being rue du Marechal Leclerc). Jean-Pierre Haag became a student of Pierre Edouard Frere and Leon Dansaert. He married Ernestine Juliette Confais and they had several children including the painter Jean Gaston Haag. It is believed that painting subjects were of his wife and children.

    He exhibited in Paris in 1870 for the first time, showing his painting titled "Interieur de forge a Villiers-le-Bel".

    Like most of the artists of Ecouen, he painted the country lifestyle, common life scenes.

    One of his major works titled "La gardeuse d'enfants en Normandie" (The Babysitter in Normandy) was exhibited in 1980 at the Paris Grand Palais. In April 1989, “Le jeu de dominos” was shown in London. Both belong to the Louviers Museum (Normandy).
