In the title compound, C18H14N2O5, the pyrrolidine ring adopts a shallow envelope conformation, with the C atom bearing the OH group (and remote from the N atom) displaced by 0.257 (2) Å from the other atoms. The cyclopentane ring has a twisted conformation about the C-C bond bearing one =O and one -OH grouping. The dihedral angle between the five-membered rings (all atoms) is 65.54 (9)° and the OH groups lie to the same side of the ring-junction. The molecular structure features a weak intramolecular O-HO bond and a possible C-H interaction. In the crystal, the molecules are linked into  chains by O-HO hydrogen bonds. Weak C-HO bonds connect the chains into (100) sheets.
