Christopher Mendez is a specialist in Old Master Prints, that is to say original etchings, engravings and woodcuts made between 1500-1850 either by the artists themselves or by printmakers interpreting the design of an artist.

Christopher Mendez was a founding exhibitor at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy and showed there regularly each spring between 1985 and 2017. He has worked with private collectors and museums across the globe since 1965 and published 87 catalogues of Old Master Prints between 1968 and 2004, with a particular emphasis on interesting, often rare, works by unfamiliar printmakers.

Selected monographic catalogues include:
