In the title compound, C17H14O4, the C=C bond adopts an E conformation and the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 73.9 (1)°. The crystal packing features C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, which generate C(4) chains propagating along the b-axis direction. Weak aromatic π–π stacking interactions [centroid–centroid distance = 3.703 (1) Å] are also observed.
