Christopher Finch was born on the island of Guernsey, in the English Channel. After studying painting at Chelsea Art School in London, and a period in Paris, he began to write about the contemporary art scene for magazines ranging from Art & Artists and Art International to the British edition of Vogue. He also wrote many catalogue essays for London galleries and organizations such as the Arts Council of Great Britain. Recognized for his writings about British Pop artists such as David Hockney and Richard Hamilton, he later also wrote about American artists including Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, and Ed Ruscha. This period culminated in the publication in book form of two collections of essays, Pop Art: Object & Image, and Image as Language: Aspects of British Art 1950-1968, as well as a monograph devoted to the paintings of Patrick Caulfield.
