David de Haen (1585, Amsterdam – 1622, Rome), was a Dutch Caravaggesque painter and draughtsman, active in Rome between 1615 and 1622.


David was born in Amsterdam and moved to Rome at a young age where he would remain the rest of his life.[2] He worked with Dirk van Baburen in Rome on the decoration of the chapel of the Pietà in the church of San Pietro in Montorio (1617–20).[3] In 1619 and the spring of 1620 de Haen and van Baburen were living in the same house in the Roman parish of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte.[4] He was a follower of Caravaggio and painted religious and historical paintings[5]
