The title compound, C14H13NO2, adopts the enol–imine tautomeric form, with an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond which generates an S(6) ring motif. The dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 7.85 (7)°. The crystal structure is stabilized by O—H⋯O, O—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional array that stacks along the a axis. In addition, a C—H⋯π inter­action contributes to the stabilization of the crystal packing.
