Is there any monitor that fits this requirement?

I'm looking for nothing smaller than 22" though.

4:3 is not square! And the great thing about wide-screen is that people often have grater field of vision to the sides than up and down. This way you can with less eye movement see larger part of the screen. Also, take a look here This question is a bit different than the one I pointed, since you need >22". – AndrejaKo Aug 22 '10 at 12:10
Widescreen monitors also follow the current tv/video standards, so you can watch more movies without bits chopped off the side or black bars. – Kez Aug 22 '10 at 12:28
4:3 is commonly (although geometrically incorrectly refered to as "square" in order to distinguish - or avoid the use of - non-widescreen. I don't mind it at all. Unless you are watching movies or the widescreen monitor is a 27 inches or larger, I'll take a "square" 19" or more any day of the week! Finding it is another story unfortunately – dimitri.p Aug 22 '10 at 12:53
You might consider rotating a widescreen monitor so that it is taller than it is wide. I know many people that do this in order to reduce scrolling. – Zooks64 Aug 22 '10 at 12:58
Would rotating a widescreen monitor actually work? The idea that the monitor would decide to flip upon itself is somewhat ridiculous. – JFW Aug 22 '10 at 14:31

If 21.3" is close enough to 22" for you :), then there is the ColorEdge CG211, FlexScanL997 and FlexScan S2100 from eizo;12=4;14=2;h=1

is there a technical limitation that 21.3" is the max? – Jonathan. Aug 22 '10 at 14:57
I believe that although there are mathematical :) reasons for having distinct steps in the sizes of monitors (so that you don't end up with "wierd" resolution values), the fact that there seems to be nothing larger that 21.3 in the 4:5 aspet ratio is more of a supply/demand/market-trend type of phenomenon :) – dimitri.p Aug 23 '10 at 19:22
