White background standard?

Does everyone expect white backgrounds on websites, even an artist's personal page?

I am developing an artist's website using Wordpress. It is several pages of image-only galleries plus a blog. The artist prefers a black background, but is receiving feedback from peers that we MUST use white. I spend most of my time reading metafilter and editing text in VIM with the Slate color sheme
, so I think the professional white background
is overhyped. (I do think that dark grey is much better than black though.)
Web designers - is a white background really expected?
