I wonder if B&W fine art prints outsell color prints? (Assuming both are very well done)

I don't know about the "very well done" part but for me, B&W outsells color. It could, of course, be that my color stuff isn't as good as my B&W.

Expanding on my comment regarding the quality of my prints, I have a lot of experience in black and white darkroom work while I have none with color; this could well affect the quality of my digital prints. I certainly like other people's color prints more than I like my own; I'm happier with my B&W stuff. Half my B&W is because I couldn't make the image look good in color.
