In the title compound, C22H23NO4·C2H6O, the pyridyl ring is aligned at 89.39 (2) and 87.41 (2)° with respect to the benzene rings, and the three rings connected to the methine C atom are arranged in a propeller-like conformation. The heterocycle is linked to the solvent molecule by an O—H⋯N hydrogen bond.
