The title compound, C15H15NO3, adopts the enol–imine tautomeric form. The two rings are twisted with respect to each other, making a dihedral angle of 44.08 (5)°. The 3-methoxy-2-[(E)-(4-methoxyphenyl)-iminomethyl]phenol unit is almost planar, the largest deviation from the mean plane being 0.047 (2) Å. Such a planar conformation might be related to the occurrence of an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond. In the crystal, inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into sheets parallel to (010). These sheets are inter­connected by weak C—H⋯π inter­actions
