Lemma 35.7.9. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Assume $f$ is a finite morphism. Then $\mathcal{F}$ is an $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module of finite type if and only if $f_*\mathcal{F}$ is an $\mathcal{O}_ Y$-module of finite type.

Proof. As $f$ is finite it is affine. This reduces us to the case where $f$ is the morphism $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(B) \to \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A)$ given by a finite ring map $A \to B$. Moreover, then $\mathcal{F} = \widetilde{M}$ is the sheaf of modules associated to the $B$-module $M$. Note that $M$ is finite as a $B$-module if and only if $M$ is finite as an $A$-module, see Algebra, Lemma 10.7.2. Combined with Properties, Lemma 28.16.1 this proves the lemma. $\square$
