French violinist from the 1904 play The Music Master by Charles Klein. Protagonist Barwig is in New York in a failed search for his wife who ran off with their daughter, and running out of money. Pinac lives in the same boarding house, and is a friend to Barwig, who has helped him get in the Musicians' Union.
Louis P. Verande played Pinac in the play. The play was adapted into a 1927 silent film. Armand Cortes played Pinac in the film. Unfortunately, it is believed no copies of the film still exist.
A novelization of the play by the author was published in 1909.
