In the title compound, C14H13NO2, the azomethine double bond adopts an E conformation and the benzene rings form a dihedral angle of 77.70 (7)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by O—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and arranged in a zigzag fashion, forming infinite chains parallel to the c axis, resulting in a graph-set R22(9) motif.
