Lemma 35.7.10. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Assume $f$ is finite and of finite presentation. Then $\mathcal{F}$ is an $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module of finite presentation if and only if $f_*\mathcal{F}$ is an $\mathcal{O}_ Y$-module of finite presentation.

**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 and finitely presented 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 finitely presented as a $B$-module if and only if $M$ is finitely presented as an $A$-module, see Algebra, Lemma 10.36.23. Combined with Properties, Lemma 28.16.2 this proves the lemma.
